Going in Joy

I'm not sure why, but I decided to do this on canvas, as opposed to paper. 

I started out with some sketches and came up with this little one. It was kind of scary to paint it, because I wasn't sure I'd choose the right colors, etc. BUT...I had to remind myself over and over that it wouldn't have been a waste...that I could learn, and then try again. And I DID have to do that in the midst of this process - there was lots of erasing that happened. :) 

Here are some of my first doodles...

And my final doodle...

Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures of the process along the way, but here are a couple of the final product...

I think, overall, I'm happy with the way it turned out, but the changes I'd make, are to thicken the "JOY", and change the font of "peace" alltogether, and probably take out that little swirl above the trees. 

Any other thoughts/suggestions would be very welcomed!! :)
