I painted this 5 x 7 on canvas board as soon as I bought my new artist acrylics, before reading any of my books. I thought it would be a good thing to have a starting point so I could see how I improve in the future. I have now read through part of one of my books and I see several problems with this picture but still, other than some of the colors are muddy in the background and some other things, I like it because it matches my Campbell's art pottery (it matches much better than the picture shows). Those aqua rocks are just from my rock garden and they are holding my painting up. I'll find a frame for it and change the paintings out as I make better paintings, however long that takes.
