This is my first finished hand made rug - it is about the size of a kitchen mat - it took me 4 months to finish and I really enjoyed the process - It is made with 100% wool and hooked on a linen backing - a labor of love - this a really relaxing art to do when I get home from work I am usually too tired to paint - but I could hook in front of the TV - and relax

2 / 6x8 panels
This is a weekly challenge that is posted on the Daily Paintworks web site - I am going to try and do the challenge every week - - It will keep me painting and what a great thing to do with a bunch of artists - !! Yep this was an onion I was painting - Carol said it would get easier with each one - but I am not sure that was my experience - my last one was the worst - oh well - I enjoyed the challenge for sure !!

We went to the San Antonio Zoo last week (me and The Marines) had a really lovely day - I think I was most impressed with this guy his claws were huge and I love the color of the rocks he was sitting on - but I feel like I never really get that color right - someday I will.
