Jubilee is one of a series of paintings I'm doing on 8X8 finished edge canvases that will be hung without frames. Sometimes I like to paint on these small canvases while I'm working up my courage to confront a larger project. Sometimes I clean the whole house in order to avoid starting on a large painting. When I'm really hitting the wall and trying to hide from that big canvas sitting on my easel, I go in search of chocolate. Chocolate may not solve any painting challenges, but it always makes everything better.
