Hello Everyone! I finally received the extra deep canvases I have been waiting to paint on this week. They are 1 1/2" deep and look so chunky and neat. Another thing I like about them is that even though I put a sawtooth hanger on the back, these paintings are deep enough to stand upright by themselves.

As you can see, I painted a sleepy kitty surprised to wake and find a Christmas elf snuggled up beside him. The other elf is equally surprised and very worried indeed! The next one is a beautiful angel holding a kitty friend. I experimented with some texture things on this one. It has an interesting puddled finish and the colors are vibrant! The third one is "Snow Day". Were there any words that brought more joy when you were a school aged child? This one has a crackle finish with lots of sparkle rubbed in!

I have another busy weekend ahead. Tomorrow morning I will be volunteering for Santa's Breakfast at the preschool where I work. After that, I hope to get some Christmas shopping knocked out and go out to eat tomorrow night. Yaay! We hardly ever do that. Hopefully, Sunday I will catch up on housework and maybe do another painting. Have an wonderful weekend!
