The buggy is gone and I'm thinking I like it better without it....I actually have the right brown for the driveway....and some nice clouds went by while I was there and they got painted onto the mural. I still have to put in the siding on all sides of the building and have some work yet to do on the front, but it is coming and I am hoping to have it finished this week. I also painted a sign for "OPEN STUDIO" and have that out by the road when I'm there....if you ever see it, please do stop in and visit!
Finished the German Shepherd, then started a new one....a turkey crossed the road in front of me yesterday morning, then stopped on top of an old stone wall and looked back at me for a few moments before scampering away....of course, I could not get my camera out quick enough, so instead the turkey will be a painting!

I can always tell when I've overextended myself; I do a LOT of things in one day and I don't seem to accomplish anything....or at least it feels that way. I am hoping to finish the dog tonight.....straightened some lines on the mural, played with grass colors, tried to mix a good driveway color, still have not accomplished that yet.......and decided to add a horse and buggy. I think, however, that the buggy is too small and the driveway too narrow.....what do you think?

This morning's progress......
I have decided it's about time I learn to mix my own colors....I only bought red, yellow, blue, black and white paint for this and am mixing every color....quite a challenge but I am doing it! Being "self-taught" can be **interesting** sometimes.....
