Hi everyone

Been hot here - going for a full week in mid to high 30s (celsius)  :sweat: and it is only the first day of Summer! Not good for Acrylics painting and also, waiting for texture paste to dry on my 900x600mm version of my Aussie Summer Abstract Acrylics painting, so I knocked up a quick 500 x 400mm Acrylics painting to give my little 3 year old niece for  :santa: this year.

All original and freehand drawn. Still need to gloss varnish and seal.

Batman,
Tamika will love this. I spent 3 weeks visiting Brisbane and another 2 weeks in Coloundra (sp) in the summer of 2009, and loved your part of the world. Don't like the high 30's though  ::) . Keep up the good work.

Beautiful gift to be cherished, not like something store bought!

Thanks everyone,

Yep, a 3 year old, getting original Acrylics paintings for Xmas!!! How exclusive it that?

The way I figure it - $4 for the stretched canvas, $1 for the paint and varnish - cheap present. Oh, except I spent something like $800 for Paint Basket classes over the last 12 months to be able to do it!

btw Tom, Caloundra
