It is always fun to open a box and find a surprise. Well, this morning as I was packing up my painting gear, for my trip to Cedarburg, Wisconsin; I discovered this painting. Since I will be packing and then traveling I won't be painting until I get to the plein air paint out. So today I am posting my found painting, Curtain Call. (I think the daffodil looks like it is taking a bow until it blooms again next spring.)

Besides I had been wanting to paint one of the water glasses that came with our cottage and the bird salt and pepper shakers that are part of my salt and pepper collection. (My Grandmother, Minnie, collected salt and pepper shakers and now I do too.)
So I put out my paint and began painting. Soon I was seeing dots before my eyes even where the dots did not exist. To finish this painting I needed to rest my eyes from time to time from all those dots. The dots were hypnotic. I was so glad the challenge didn't include counting the dots or connecting them!
