"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."February 4, 2013 at 8:38 pm #200687

Very beautiful canvas Lisa! I'm glad I was playing around with my glass beads and gesso when I did my Finnibair type canvas the other week. Can this be any size canvas or does it have to be a 12×12 canvas?February 4, 2013 at 9:31 pm #200696February 4, 2013 at 9:50 pm #200697
