When I was a child, I did several paint-by-numbers - all of them bought from the local dime store, and less than 8 1/2 by 11. I loved doing them more than keeping them. I have recently started another, rather larger(perhaps 16 by 20, which is of a French walk, and which came all the way from China in the mail. The spaces I am meant to paint seem very very small. This seems harder than I remember it. But I am still enjoying the process. The 'bent' streetlight is merely a soft bend in the canvas, and is really straight. Seriously.
