My Process: Painting Where Stars Come From
I usually start with a rough idea for the canvas size I'm using.

Looking at these reminds me of what a fantastic and productive

Hey, welcome back! I'm sorry to hear that. I myself have been a wreck since returning from Uganda, which is sad because I have a lot of great photos to process and share! Please let me know if I can do anything for you.
