Friday Pretties: A new painting

Yellow and black
Something i just worked on. Sorry, the photo came out a little blurry. But you get the idea.
My artist friend Andrea is working over this canvas with a net of tiny silver dots, and i'm curious to see how this will turn out. We will present it at an open-house event soon, and i'll post aboot it as soon as i get to take some pix next week. Meanwhile i hope you'll have a fantastic weekend with enough fun to give no chance to november-blues! To get some more inspiration, visit Joyce to see  more pretties here!!
