The Monday Before Christmas...

What a lovely day here in Brisbane, Australia. The weather has been lovely, the sun shining, and there has been a cool bay breeze wafting through the studio {along with the smell of freshly made bread!}. I've been indoors painting today, it's been very nice. I've made lots of progress!

Homemade Rosemary Garlic Bread, based on this recipe.

I cleaned my palette to start a-fresh on a new painting this morning. The one on the right below is still in the early under painting stages, it's first layer of paint just put down. They are my nephews! Aren't these boys cute? I'm following the same procedure as I did for the little boy on the left {Step by Step here}.

Also, yesterday I reached 1,300 fans on Facebook. To CELEBRATE, I'm gifting this painting to a lucky fan {Enter Here}
