6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

This was a real challenge, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. There are so many twists and turns. Really difficult to keep track of where I was in the bow. It was a learning experience in values, too. I'm pleased with the final result. :-)

I am sooo excited because I won a painting from Dana Cooper! She is one of my favorite artists. How lucky am I?!! Thanks again, Dana!

Also, I signed up for Karin Jurick's workshop in the fall. I can't wait!!
