IF = Poise























I did this painting yesterday and named it 'courage'
This morning I found the word for Illustration Friday was 'poise' and this painting couldn't have suited it more.
Now I'm not sure if the title is 'poise' or 'courage'

I'm enjoying working in this size. It's a little bit bigger so I can develop more of a scene. It measure 9" x 7.5" x .75". The skirt is made of tissue paper, I love the effect.

Now I have to get back to my housework. We are having relatives from Chicago coming to stay the weekend...

Wow. LOVE the texture on this one. And what a great theme. Couldn't we all use a bit more courage?
Cheers,
