Just for Fun!

I sometimes receive these little canvas mounted boards(2"by 3") from Artboards where I purchase my linen panels for my small paintings. I love the Belgian linen surface. It is smoother than regular canvas but not as slick as gessoed board can be. They are so small I haven't known what to do with them. I gave them to my young students that I taught earlier this summer and let them paint a "portrait" of piece of candy. They were highly motivated because they could eat it when they were finished! I could not resist painting one, too.

That's a sweet idea :)
It's a nice painting of such a simple thing.

And yes I ate mine too when I finished the painting :)
