This little 'Daily' took about 6 hours, if you count the first attempt and subsequent wipe off! The whole time I was thinking I really wanted to go for a walk, casting my eye out toward the sunshine that was slipping away, and not really focusing on my painting. The first design was all, all wrong, and nothing I could do could pull it out. Finally, about 3:30 in the afternoon, I wiped it off, said "To heck with it!" and went out for a stroll during the most beautiful part of the day. When I got home I switched from the 6x8 format I was using, grabbed a trusty 6x6, and this painting fell off the brush. I love to paint whites that aren't white, and these mushrooms fit the bill.
Then back home, where they became part of a mushroom-spinach-rice concoction that gets scooped into a pita with a slice of cheese, and grilled till the cheese melts, mmmmMMMmm!
