three ..... is four hearts

first ... it was just a papered canvas with some yellow glazing ........
then...... i squared it off and added some more glazing...orange, blue, green  ........ 
then i finished it out with some hearts ..... i had grand plans of further embellishment ... and had it sitting in the family room waiting ....with my needle and floss all ready to start embellishing ... but i spent a lot of time looking at it and not wanting to change it .... so, i didn't .... allison came over today and helped me decide that it is done .... so ... that's the evolution of number three......
i must have been moaning about my slow start to my artistic new year more than i knew ... because i got some encouraging comments and emails .... jeannie said she knew i could do 100 because they didn't all have to be big ... she gave me permission to crank out some little ones ... so ... i started just that! .... i started eight canvases ... six inches square ..... that'll get me going! 

and here is my happiest happy of the day .... my pal allison called me this morning .... she was due to come over to do art .... but, she was at dick blick ... and dick blick was having a big old art sale ..... she asked if i needed SALE canvases ... oh no, i'm set, i'm fine, got plenty for now ..... ok, they are just SO cheap ... how cheap .... WOW cheap .... so .... she bought some for me ... how many canvases did i ask my dear pal allison to buy for me .... why don't you guess ..... 

how many canvases did allison buy for me? .... and how did you figure your guess?

I took all of 12 seconds to think up a good number - knowing that you love a good deal and canvases...and I came up with 30!

It was a great deal and you have 97 more art items to go -- the 100 can me any and all art right -- not just canvases right???
so I say 30 sounds good and round and many!

Ten. Ten because you can so quickly figure out the price, hahaha.

My guess is 100. Why you ask? First number in my head when you asked!
