Little Red Riding Hood Painting Almost Finished

On Sunday I cleaned off my painting table and a funny thing happened. I was motivated to do some painting! The painting is above - she's been in process for a while. She is painted on a wood box frame panel. Right now I'm painting the sides black and then will crackle the whole thing before it's done. I am pleased that she has that awkward head too big for the body look that is so common in old folk art paintings. I also like that she has a gentle innocence about her.

Here is a peek at one corner that has been organized. I've been looked at the magazine Where Women Create and have been inspired (again) to make my areas a place that is a joy and respite to go to create.

You can't see to the right of this shelving unit -
that's the disaster zone I have yet to address!
