From Paulette Insall's Organic Dimensions Class

"...You're Safe..."

First of all Happy Father's Day - to all of the fine gentlemen in the world who are active partners in parenting... and to all of the wonderful 'pet Fathers' out there too !

I have been enjoying Paulette's Organic Dimensions class and have been following along with the lessons - working on two different backgrounds. I almost tossed this canvas in the trash several times. It was not coming out at all the way I had at first planned. After Lesson 4 was posted this past Monday I decided to work on the one I liked the least - this one. I figured that, since I was not overly happy with this to begin with, it would not hurt if I messed it up. After I added the image - or focal point as Paulette says - I decided that , although the background was still not my favorite, I liked it pretty well after all. Sometimes it's really difficult to foresee what the possibilities might be with a piece. I guess I'm glad that I thought about it for awhile and kept the canvas to experiment on. I am looking forward to Lesson 5 - and seeing what I can come up with for background number 2. I may even prepare some more backgrounds this weekend .... but have some sewing to to enjoy first !
