#3 of the challenge. I have always heard people talk about painting on linen panels and how nice they are. I guess I've stayed away because of the cost difference. But while I was painting this, I kept thinking, "why does this feel so good? My brush is just smoothly gliding and guiding itself". Then I looked at the back....I had bought a few of these at Hobby Lobby, and forgot about them. Nice. I'll be getting more! Thank you all so much for the great birthday and art comments. Just incredible. I had a wonderful birthday.
