Today's small amount of progress...






















Today I only accomplished a little bit on the dog painting, and the mural....the building, to be accurate, is GRAY....yesterday I mixed black and white (new paint) and got a bluish-gray. I thought it was just the lighting, but it wasn't, as I really could see today. So....I used a different black, it seems the new one had been mixed with too much blue - and repainted everything I did yesterday (I hate it when that happens), in the process lost some details but I'll bring them all back another day......side windows are too tall also, some shading is off - all waiting to be fixed with my magic paintbrush. I ran out of time and steam today........

Mural progress...




















Today's progress.....at its completion, there will be more clouds; there will be a day when I am there and will look out the window and see the perfect clouds for the mural and I will paint them! For now, getting the basics in....

New one started....




















The very beginning of a new commission - a lucky lady's Mother's Day gift...

A better photo...and mural update...























The mural's progress so far - I'll get back to it sometime Friday....and the official photographer's photo of my "Outside Cat" painting.

Finished the cat!

Mural #1 has been started! It's Memorial Hall....

The cat painting is almost finished....possibly today.

New painting at the easel....

















Show season will soon be upon me, and I have no cat paintings to display, so here is my "Outside Cat".....she is a neighbor's cat with a very weird name that I can never remember (must be it doesn't fit her) who comes and sits outside my door waiting for attention.....I forgot to take photos as I started it, so we'll jump in at this point....certainly not finished, but on its way.
