Oh boy, this guy took me forEVER to finish! My first ‘real’ canvas, I wasn’t sure how to start. Intimidating, you know? So I threw some blue and purple down a few Thursdays ago. Let it sit for awhile. Dreamed the blue/purple/green blocks of color, but with a spiral to accompany the checkboxes. Well, when I attacked it today, the spiral didn’t work. Tried lots of different colors and layouts. Didn’t work.

But then the newspaper I had used to protect my table from the paint for the checkbox squares caught my eye. I threw that on, and danced for joy – it worked!
