Well, my large hat painting didn't work out. I have another 6 hats to paint that were graciously on loan until March from a local antique shop. I'll paint each hat on a little canvas, just suspended on a field of color. I feel so much happier that I gave up on my original idea. It was complicated and was giving me a stomach ache. Yikes! Hope you enjoy my little hats and who knows, maybe something will come of them.
