This is me painting the large commission for "HOW SWEET THE SOUND".

The watercolor is 4' x 3' and quite fun to paint. I'm doing a progession - step-by-step process.. and will post it here when the painting is completed. Which will be monday.

Carol, girl, that hurts my back just thinking about being bent over like that on my knees for hours!!! But I know this will be amazing :) Check your title - I think it's HOW sweet not HO Sweet (that would be a totally different painting!)
