A new start....















A new painting just barely started....2 fox pups peeking over a rock, one (this one) with a feather in his mouth...

I was speechless...





















It's hung....with those gorgeous rhododendrons in bloom all around it.....


Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "You must do the thing you think you cannot do".......

Went back again this afternoon....and now I am declaring it DONE! I'll sign it when we hang it....maybe before Friday.
I'm tired now....

Almost there...


















Spent the morning with it....made bricks, did some shading and worked on the road...still have to finish details on bottom of columns on the front of the building and fine-tune the cars.....

Can't stay away....



















Went back again this afternoon...straightened the sidewalk and did some work on the cars....

On my way...

















Finished the tree, added more detail to the bank building that I had not seen before, finished the grass and bushes, now on to the most difficult part, because the lower part is so close to the floor....it's a challenge to work on. Have to fix the sidewalk too, it looks crooked in thos photo. Mural will be hung on Friday!!!!!!!!!!!! And watch the Reminder next week for an article on the murals.......

Sunday Afternoon at the Mural...


















After 2 1/2 days away from it I am certainly refreshed....and I see things I missed......today I finished the upper shaping on the side of the building, put the design into the 4 rectangular inlays, added branches into the tree and extended it a bit, still not finished with it, added some little details to the front that I had missed, and started my final coloring for the brick....on the front left I started making the brick pattern and I like the way it looks....this building has a distinct light brick coloration. I also put in the upper gray on the mill's windows. I'll be back at it tomorrow....I would like to finish it this week, so we'll see....

Finished Kitty...
