I am painting on some 4x4 stretched cotton canvas that I've had
in the studio for ages. Must admit I'd rather work on oil primed
linen.I prefer a smooth surface, so after I've used these 4x4's,
I'm going to gesso some mdf and give that a go.  Having fun
pushing the boundaries though! Hopefully soon, some brave
family and friends will supply me with interesting photos!   ;-D

So cool that you are doing faces, these are great- I look forward to seeing more!

About blogging from an iPad- I have tried to do this myself, and after a lot of time and some confusion, I found that I could upload images from my iPad to an app. called "flickstackr". After I have loaded an image onto flickstackr, I can upload it to "Flickr" and from there, I directly upload it to my blog. This is all done just with my iPad. The only downside perhaps is that the image on your blog then is only a link, so if someone clicks on it, it directs them to your Flickr page. You may not want this. I also don't know that it would work on DPW, but I would be curious to know. I hope that you are having luck with blogpress or some other method. It would be so nice to be able to do everything on the iPad. I just don't know if that's possible at this point, but I'd be curious to know if you are able to come up with something that works!
