Panel Boards and Paper and the Paintings that are on Them

Henry is Late Again
12 x 16" mixed media on canvas panel

 Panels made with canvas, panels made with hardboard, plain watercolor's difficult to decide which is best.  They all have good things about them.  They all make the art look different.  They also feel different as you work on them.  

 Mrs. Baker on a Sunday Afternoon
5 x 7 inch oil on hardboard

It is impossible to decide which is best.

Promise and Her Pocket Full of Flowers
4 x 6 inch mixed media on watercolor paper

So I will just keep painting on all of them.

I really am going to rake leaves today.  Really I am.

Oh, and guess mother saw her cardiologist yesterday and her heart is unchanged which is great news.  It has been two years since her life-pivoting heart attack full of dreadful diagnosis' and we are all still marveling that she is still here with us, still living independently and doing so well.  She even danced a little this passed weekend.  She turns 80 in May so we are planning a big birthday party for her.  

I hope your day is full of joy.

♥ Lisa
