Free painting!

I'm feeling quite proud of myself at the moment. I recently came across a few offcuts of MDF and decided to make up some painting supports. I cut them to standard sizes - 16x12; 14x11 and 12x10 inches and ended up with 20 boards.

FRANKLIN is our SPECIAL ...featured member for April! 
Franklin passed away after a relatively short battle with cancer. It was a complete shock. He is missed by everyone who knew him. Franklin was one of the nicest ....kindest men...I've had the pleasure of knowing. This month we're celebrating his life..in our monthly challenge as well.
I hope we get lots of entries this month. We'll be painting from an album of Franklin's fabulous photos.
We miss you so much F!
You'll remain with us though....through your photos and your fab art.
You're in our hearts...dear friend!
