Ok, turkey painting number one is complete and as they say, "you live by the sword, you die by the sword". This is a very modest beginning, painted a bit on the sloppy side. I have almost nowhere to go but up thank goodness. I have already started the next painting, this time a bit larger (8" x 10") and on linen rather than the inferior canvas of the first painting. That in itself should provide for a better painting.
