A Small Painting
By the way, I'd like to say that Dick Blick's (www.dickblick.com) little canvases are very good quality and a great bargain at $1.99 (for the 5"x7" size).
I have volunteered to paint 5 of them, and here's my first, an acrylic painting of a hare amongst the bleeding hearts and ferns. I think the color scheme is successful. And the hare has a sweet expression. My error (at least one of them) is in the bleeding heart foliage. I drew it from memory. After I finished the painting, I happened to run across a photo of bleeding hearts in a gardening catalog that had just arrived in the mail, and I saw that my memory of the foliage - although fine regarding the color - fell short regarding the shape!
I guess I'll call it "artistic license." I've checked, and mine is current.
