First Day at the Show...

Image
I started this wolf painting on a feather today at the show....it was nice to have it to fill the moments when no one was around. A good day at the Audubon Center today and it looks like there will be plenty of rain-free hours there tomorrow!

Mural and Feather Updates...

Image
The oriole feather is finished and packed for the show and I was able to get to the studio to do a bit on the mural, too....that will be it until Monday....I am off to Glastonbury to set up!

Update...

My next feather, a Baltimore Oriole, not finished yet...and I've started on a commission to repaint this Pomeranian statue to look like a certain black and white dog....so I have started on the white. Then the mural....struggling with the first car....but I'll get it.....too much on my plate to focus enough on any one thing, as you can tell, I have 3 things going....and tomorrow I will be getting my set-up done at Glastonbury Audubon (for the show this weekend).......next week I am hoping to spend much more time with the mural.

Turkey painting finished...

Monday....

Image
It's very difficult to get a true-to-life photo of the mural; the cameras distorts it because I have to take it from an angle and way too close up.....anyway, after 6 hours of mat-cutting today (getting prints matted for the show this weekend) I was pretty tired and my hand was too, so I didn't get much done on the mural...I did change some lines that were wrong and put the sky in so that I could see the building better....and at the end before I "pooped out" I started pencil-sketching in the cars in the front. I'll be picking at it until Thursday but then next week after the show I'll be much more productive with it.
