New Canvas From Manuel Salas

Manuel calls this piece "Un Pocito de Color" ( A Little Bit of Color).  Looks like she has  glamorized herself into the ultimate sugar skull for her appearance on Day of the Dead!

Manuel has agreed to collaborate on a HALLOWEEN version of this canvas and I'm really looking forward to painting it.  Hopefully we can get her finished before October 31st.

Still Cute?

Paulette opted to stitch the partridge on her Christmas quilt without the topknot, thus making him a little more authentic.  The stitches we planed seem to be working out well - good thing since I had already painted them on the canvas! It's amazing what a little white acrylic paint will do.  I decided to stitch an Amadeus topknot on mine and offer him as a separate ornament as well as the center piece of the wreath.  He's turning out to be quite a versatile little guy.
