I have completed the drawing and it is ready to be transferred onto my "watercolor paper canvas". This one is a 10x10 inch but there is so much detail in the lace and petals that it is going to be a challenge. It might be one to paint larger sometime in the future but at least I can work out most of the color choices and such on this one.
I have made a big pot of hamburger soup, have fresh cornbread just out of the oven, there is a fire in the fireplace and I am working on a new painting. Life is good. This cold, icy weather will end tomorrow and north Florida will be back in the 70s by the weekend - YES!
