Meanwhile....one day when I was in Italy I took the train (by myself!) to Siena for the day and did this loose, gestural sketch in marker. I recently translated it to canvas using acrylic on cotton (or shower curtain I should say...I had this shower curtain I loved and eventually shrunk it in the wash and didn't have the heart to throw it out.) Voila! Shower curtain is now painting backdrop. It's a small, funky, super thick and super fun painting...almost finished but not quite.
Leila seeing her first cow over the weekend. She said "MOOO" when she saw him.
More pics to come, but here's one from the weekend with just 3 of her 17 cousins before her baptism.
