A Present in a Painting

For all the people I've been telling about this, here are a few progress shots of the painting I'm doing for Mark for our 2nd anniversary.  It just means he can't know about the blog until the end of the week...I hope I don't forget that I'm not supposed to tell him...

And without the flash:

I figure if he has this when he finds a new place to live, at least it will be a little bit classy.

I'm really glad that I decided to do this little project.  It's been years since I've done a painting for myself and not for a class.  It's also the first time in a long time that I've worked with acrylics.  I forgot how much fun painting is and how much I love art.  I feel like I'm rediscovering the artist in me I thought was lost, so hopefully I'll have plenty of stuff to put up here in the future.  Enjoy!
