It's been a relatively good day, even though it's still frigid outside.  The warmth is coming though, above freezing tomorrow - 37!!

I had fun with this painting today.  I stained the canvas with some fast-drying earthy red paint (Gamblin Fast Matte - Transparent Earth Red), let it dry and then painted over the stain.  I some of the earth red show through and it has a nice effect.  Going to try this again on Wednesday - tomorrow is Emma-palooza day...the 4 yr old whirling dervish of independence.
