Shhhh....Just a Peek

I can hardly wait to give this Christmas gift to someone very special. It's also my entry this week for Creative Therapy. I can't show you the complete painting yet because that would give too much away, but I'll show the whole painting on Christmas Day. I started it about a week and a half ago but couldn't much done the first few days because I was still in school. I've been getting up really early to work on it, though, while watching reruns of the first season on Dexter, and yesterday, in my haste, I had a major accident involving about 16 ounces of spilled gesso, ALL OVER my rug, furniture, face, and hair. But, unbelievably, I was able to clean it all up, and the painting is finished. So now I'm off to look for a frame. I love Christmas!

How cute.. LOVE the color as always. AND I know it's crazy but I adore skunks. I grew up on a farm and we smelled them all the time. To this day I like that smell. I brings me back to childhood and home every time.. Great Work!

This looks promising! I look forward to seeing the whole thing.
I started the first season of Dexter, too. Tired of hearing everyone say how good it is!

Your surprise painting looks beautiful! I'm amazed that you're managing to be so productive this close to Christmas. I've almost completely shut down! How long did it take you to clean up the gesso???? Have a wonderful Christmas and thanks so much for sending love when I was poorly x
