Band Ball and Tissues



Band Ball and Tissues

7x5in oil on linen  $100.



Day 11 in the 30 in 30 Days Challenge
My personal goal  for this challenge - to paint only what I have
never painted or thought of painting before.

I have never seen a rubber-band ball before.
My friend has made this from the bands that come around her
daily newspaper
Good idea, and I am going to start making one myself.

I have just arrived back home after a fabulous week long
figure workshop in Albuquerque.
I am looking forward to catching up with everyone's blogs.
But first...some time with my Mr Special and the dog.

    With Tussues and Band Ball you substantiate what Ian Roberts says--It is not the subject that is important--it is how you paint the subject!
