morning painting

Hello and Happy Friday!  Last week I shared that I am taking Mati Rose's painting class, Daring Adventures in Paint and Life. We have been playing with building background layers. For me, making that first paint stroke on a white canvas is often the most difficult. Why is that? 

Today I woke early and exercised. I felt so energized and creative afterwards that I came home and immediately started to paint. This is what I have so far. I have a lot more work to do but I really like where it is headed. Maybe waking at 5am is the key?
