    Ooooooooppppps I had not finished , perhaps my panic set in when you mentioned housework , stylish art Dianne …. And a real big thanks for you visit and lovely kind comment . You always make my day .. Paulxx

  • Thanks Paul! I love painting with coffee. I even used some masking fluid for the first time on this one. Coffee painting really evolves when you try it as there are so many different effects you can achieve with it. I’m still patiently waiting for your first coffee painting too, Paul :)

    Wonderful dragon, love the name!

  • Thanks Diane! I’ve had the idea for the name for a while. Just needed to figure out how I wanted to paint the dragon.
