I framed the moose feather in an antique mahogany frame....
I'll be back to the mural tomorrow morning, had a great day with Mom at the shore yesterday; my senses are still flooded with the smell of those wild roses that grow there. We heralded the dawning of her 77th year in style!

I'm not quite finished with it; I started with the branches then added the leaves, now I have to bring the branches back a bit. In the original postcard I am working from, the tree arcs down over the lettering on the side of the building but we decided the tree should be 'pruned' so you could see that lettering......I also removed the hedges from the lawn....call it artistic license : )
Finished the clouds this morning and worked on the lower part of the side of the building, then had to add the building just barely seen on the left edge, all in preparation for the tree....maybe later this afternoon I'll get back to it as I am taking a VACATION DAY tomorrow!
I went through my lifetime collection of feathers last night and found some white turkey feathers...it got me all fired up on doing feathers again! I haven't done anything with the end of the feather yet, not too sure what I will do....I might frame this one.

I'm going there first thing tomorrow when my eyes are fresh....

Spent close to 4 hours there today but it seems I didn't get a lot done.....worked on the mill, put in the truck and it was too small so I re-did the truck....started on the clouds....I made the truck a dark green, now looking at this photo on the computer I think maybe it's too dark....tomorrow's another day!
