Still painting away

Good evening friends.
So this is my 16x12 inch canvas I am finally able to post. There were glare issues on my part so I am happy to be able to show you this little Monika Brint design.
I just had to paint it on a canvas. It was relatively quick and very friendly to say the least. I love friendly snowmen.
You can't see in the picture here but the snowman with a greenish coat has a rusty bell hanging off his hat, the other snowmen have real wooden painted black buttons glued onto their coats. Another idea from my hubby JB to do that. He is a clever boy that one. Think I will keep him around as a craft consultant.

And below is my latest finished eDition pattern from Kim Klassen's weekly pattern subscription. I worked on 2 of these today and loved how they turned out. I bought the wood at Home Depot and thought I was buying the right size according to the tags on the wood. I get home and I can't get my 2nd tree on the wood which is to the right of the house, there are supposed to be 2 trees but I could not manage to squeeze it in.
Little did I know that when they sell wood it isn't necessarily the size that you are buying. I measured the width of my wood then I got home and I was missing 1/4 of an inch. To me that is a big difference.
With some help from Kim Klassen she informed me of what she does and the measurements that she buys so hopefully this won't happen again.
I have never heard of such nonsense.
Anyways more things to paint and then I think I will stop painting either Thursday or Friday to do the fiddly stuff.
Thank you for stopping by
