So, at the urgings of my own heart, plus those of my mother, Sami, and my boss, I started a painting from one of the inspiration photos I was discouraged from using in art class. So this is outside-of-class work, mainly going from what I've learned in books.

(Have now moved the "painting table" a few more inches away from my closet, which has no doors and is therefore vulnerable.)

Okay, I had to sneak a little cerulean into the palette, too. (I'm now just keeping my palette taped to this little folding table. After putting two more sheets of disposable palettes over the top of this, I'm able to fold the table up and keep Anu from sprawling on top of paint while I'm away.)
