30 Paintings in 30 Days (but I'm only on #7)

Well, it's been over a week since I painted.  It seems I just can't be happy completing a painting in one day. I would be cheating myself if I forced it, so that's why I just decided I would do it when I can. After the arctic blast I wasn't feeling well, so I took a few days off.
But I'm back at it and I finished this piece over the last three days. It's called "Blue Dress" and measures about 9 x 12". It was completed using Golden acrylics on Morilla 140# cold-pressed watercolor paper and a little paper doll dress from the 1950s.  

I initially did this with the Nibblefest contest in mind, but it's too big and I fear it won't sell for what it's worth, so I'll be doing a smaller one for Nibblefest. The theme this month is "blue" so I might try my hand at one half the size - or even an ATC, although I really don't like working that small.
