Painting on muslin, "Evaline"


I just finished this painting last night, I am so excited about working with the muslin ground, I keep running upstairs after my babysitting duties are over and painting a new one! I listed it on etsy and it already sold, but I will be offering it as a print.

Peggy,
Thank you and thank you also for following my blog!

Ces,
I follow you too, I found you through Renee. I love your drawings, and your musings. Your personality comes through your blog, for sure. :)

Diane, Thank you!

Latifah,
Thank you too. that surprised me a little. I was sorry to see her go.

Tascha, Thanks you sweetheart!

Julie, You should try it once you get settled, it's awesome, just work out your aggression by tearing some pieces of muslin, coat it with cheap house paint or gesso, sketch, paint, and it's so cheap and awesome and you can sew on it too, which I have not done yet, but I will!

Elise, Well thank you for reading my posts. Sometimes I just ramble on and wonder is anyone out there?

Thanks Winging it and Janine!
Lynne,
You are so inspiring to me, you and Sharon and so generous and patient with sharing with the blog world. I am really bad about documenting my process, I want to be generous too, but I have so little time to paint right now I am stingy with my time. :)
Thank you!

Julie
