This is the ONLY way I will be able to paint anything! Still making my slow way through tutorials on Lynda.com and this is my tinkering with effects. Rain is forecasted for the weekend, so I'm looking forward to more learning and playing. I've taken some vacation time this upcoming week, much needed time. A very dear friend will be visiting for a few days and we have plans to walk and talk and take pictures and drink coffee and eat great food . . . bliss!
