This is my first done on the wrong side of the canvas - a new thing for me?  I always tell
my students that there are no mistakes in art, so I better stick to my words!  I have 
found that it's so fun to use oil sticks.  Question on this one is - what DOES the note say?

I painted some glazes and realized I was using the wrong side of the canvas
(something I'm sure I shouldn't admit!), but decided to do it anyway.
You know, I really liked the way it turned out.  It was only the first time
I'd used oil pastels and it was pretty fun!  I always them for
my little student artists and love the way they use them, so the teacher 
better do some practicing herself!
