Mural Changes....

Image
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!

One finished, one begun....

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!

German Shepherd almost done...

A little of this, a little of that...

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?

A busy Wednesday....

I have done a little to the German Shepherd, not much...and same with the mural (yikes! I see a crooked window I'll need to fix tomorrow!).....now I am off to make bread dough.....yum!

This morning's progress...

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.....

mural progress today...
