I thought I was done...



















Yeah, well, I wasn't done....now I THINK I am.....

NOW it's done





















THE MURAL IS FINISHED! Once we get it down off of the wall I can title and sign it and when we hang it I will be able to get a straight good photo of it....and finally see it from a distance of more than 5 feet!
Dabbled with my turkey painting too....and prepared a feather for painting a bluebird on it; that's the next one....

The end of the day....






















A better photo of my "Winter Goldfinch" feather.....and the mural. I think tomorrow I may make the buggy tracks in the driveway a little less evident....then I am calling it done. I made arrangements to get it hung up next week, at which time I will be able to sign it.....it's too close to the floor to sign it now, I tried! I'm tired now........

So far this morning...






















I finished my winter goldfinch this morning - the photo is a little blurry, on a sunny day I'll get a better one....and dabbled with the background on the turkey painting.
Now I am off to FINISH that mural - I'm determined to do that today!

Mural close to completion...






















Siding is all done, spent time with the forefront, hoping to finish it tomorrow....

Next feather....




















Painting on a feather must not be challenging enough; I am painting on a TINY feather!

A little mural progress...

















Did more tweaking this afternoon....most importantly, straightened the roof - it was WAY off! Got siding done on every side except the right side, then the grass and driveway and I will be done!

My First Feather!
























I did it! My first painted feather! I think I may cover the end of the feather with a piece of deerhide, haven't decided....

I'm so excited!




























I have picked at my turkey painting a bit....but I AM SO EXCITED....I am finally doing something I have thought about doing for years - feather painting! First one is a hawk....

The Mural!




















One photo is the mural at the end of today's work, the other was yesterday when my sneaky photographer caught me!
The only things left now to do are the siding and then to make the grass and driveway "real".........almost finished!

The Mural Again.....
















The end of my mural work for today....and the FIRST thing I am going to do the next time I work on it is to tweak those columns in the front....they are slightly off.

This morning's mural progress




















Slow progress this morning, fine-tuning a lot of things, making lines straight, and I started the siding on the left part of the building. I am at the tedious part of the process, the finishing....
