      Right?!! Excellent, Jolie! I thought so myself. Watching the process start to finish was a joy. I ful-on dog watching something build to fruition in such a powerful, end-product way. And now, the ship keeps sailing regaling in its intensity. The finished painting is a Power!

      I appreciate you stepping in to comment.

        I used to oil paint and tried acrylics a time or two, but just being creative no matter how it turns out is the best. Any decent painting I ever did ended up in peoples home, so I have none of my own creations, can you believe? lol

          Thanks for sharing that, Jolie. I have a similar gig. I remember when nothing was selling, and so I started to make a point to show up with a painting under my arm at every birthday party or event as a housewarming thank you. And then, one social butterfly summer, bbqs weddings, birthdays, etc… I came home after one and… OH, only my 3 oils and 1 water color that are MINE and on my walls are…WOW, I have NO backlog. All-gone. Better get back to work and paint some more. 🙂
