This last Thursday I had my oil painting class in La Jolla and chose one of my harbor photos to paint. I mentioned to the gal next to me that I was determined to finish my painting that day and give it to my husband for Valentine's Day (that day). She promptly named my painting "LOVE BOATS".
I got this much done during class and surprised Tim right before he surprised me with a trip to Coronado Island to The Boathouse for a lovely dinner. Today I placed it in a frame to see how it looks. My instructor says every painting looks better in a frame, don't you agree? I still need to finish some details, sign it and then step back.
