My first acrylic still life

Well, I have been able to do at least something creative every day. Often just work on an ATC, usually I'll also work a bit on the baby quilt. Recently tho, as part of a a-thon at a group of us painted and drew from the same photo to see if the others could blindly tell whose was whose based on their familiarity of the artists style.

Really just meant to be a fun exercise, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I often work in watercolor and pen and suspect that is what people might have expected from me, but this painting done on 8x12 canvas board was done in acryllic. I'm quite new to acrylic, so don't have the technique down quite yet. But for one of my first attempts, it wasn't too bad.
