A little more work done...
















Did a little more work on the dogs this afternoon...it won't be long and it will be finished!
I also picked up a sign I'll be painting...for those Stafford people, watch Bim's antique shop (Yellow Brick Road) for the new (front) sign soon! It has primer on it and needs some finishing before painting but I have high hopes for a spectacular sign very soon!

Mural Progress...



















The only part not drawn out now is the front steps and the detail on top of each window...then it will be time to start painting it!

Casey & Sam

















A little more progress...

Whale Watch
































Just a few images from a spectacular day at Stellwagen Bank. Watched humpback whales and did see one Minke whale in the distance. One of these photos is a mother and calf that we watched for some time, the whale doing the tail flip is feeding....the tail whip stirs up fish and you can see the birds on the left waiting for some of the bounty! It is rare to be able to watch a whale surface feed and it was awesome....the top picture shows the INSIDE of the whale's mouth as he is gathering the krill he has stirred up to come to the surface.

Back to work!




















It's getting there - I am restraining myself from adding color until it is all drawn out and correct - next will be the front entryway and the side porches.

Today's progress on both the mural and Casey and Sam's painting....slowly but surely both are getting there....tomorrow instead of painting I'll be on a ship watching whales etc....I can't wait!
