Stream update

I just couldn't wait. I wanted to cut this out early.

WOW!!! I'm curious by what you mean 'cut it out?' It looks like you painted it on wood (balsam wood?) This one is soooo pretty! argh... I want to leave work right now and try this!!!

Actually, I probably should have stated a little more clearly on the blog. I digitally "cut it out" by scanning the image into Illustrator, then drew the outline of the figure with the pen tool. Then I made a clipping mask to "cut off" the excess of the painting, to get rid of all the wood part around the girl. The original painting was done on birch that I bought at Lowes. Thanks for your interest!
