Snails and Stumps

It's done at last! A happy little snail cruising through a gang of lollipops. I envy him.

After I finished the painting last night, I went ahead and began a new quick one. My muse was in full-blown creative mode. I sucked it up a week ago and bought some small 5x7" canvas panels, since I was unable to locate any hardboard panels of that size. I don't like painting on canvas, but this lil' painting of stumps is coming along so nicely that I have plans for a few more works on canvas.
I had originally drawn out a balloon scene on this particular panel, but my muse took over and painted over it, revealing a neato patterned background and some somber stumps. If there's one thing I've learned, it's that you never fight the muse...

Anywho, I still need to throw in the shadows and then get to work on painting the stumps. When it's done, I'll be listing it for sale in ye old shop! Weeee! I'll let ya all know when that'll be.

It's a beautiful day here, and I have plans to go relax at the beach after a trip to the post office (thank you Rachel and Dianne!) and a much-loathed trip to the grocery store. Tootles!
