Painting No.2 (bottom is the underlay) the collage-ed background I created to paint on top of

The top painting is not finished yet. I want to paint a little more on the leaves. Can't wait to see what Mati + Lisa have up their sleeves for Week 2 of - Get Your Paint On !! worth every penny already. Below the final version of my first painting - I think the little bit of black really added something. Have to stop today and work on another big fish, potential fame + fortune project.

Oh Happy day ! I'm having so much fun, it feels exactly how I hoped & imagined unabated creativite flow would feel like and that feeling is like a drug to my heart and soul and oh these bright cheery colours are so very welcome in my otherwise winter white & grey existence ... I can't really believe it I am so pleased with how my first painting has turned out and trust me I'm such a hard gal to please ;-) I had convinced myself that I would fail at this ... tis true.

Hooray !

Painting No. 1 - a garden, 10x8 mixed media - Susan Black
