101 Art days: Day 1!

Well, 101 art days got off to a flying start. I do so hope I can keep up the momentum. 
I decided to start of by reworking some old pieces I am no longer happy with, and also I have some backgrounds I have prepared which I have never done anything with, so now is the ideal opportunity to get going with these and no longer have them as failures or unfinished pieces laying around my house!
I made 3 Native American inspired backgrounds last year, and dug one of them out to work on today.

 I have been mulling over an idea in my head lately for an illustrated book, and while I don't want to give too much away I will just say that these backgrounds were the ideal starting point and I'm kind of thinking these 101 art days might just be the push I need to do something about it. 

So I painted a Native American girl onto the canvas to go with the background.

Here are some details showing the background

I haven't come up with a title yet, I shall mull it over first...

YAY Lucy, great start! A book sounds super exciting. And writing is like any skill, gets easier with practice.
