The beauty...after the shoveling...

























How blessed an artist is, to have eyes that see the beauty......after Mother Nature's onslaught of snow to move this month.......

Fire Painting...












Remember this one? Got rid of the ambulance, put a hose from the truck to the front door and put the ladder in the back of the house rather than on the side...it was incorrect placement. Next is to add in more firemen. In the final project, the big mural, the old truck will be moved back some, it is too far forward.

Ambulance Painting...











I couldn't start putting people etc in here until I got the background more solid, it was like everything was floating...so there is background now, even though I am sure I will change it later on. Waiting for the oil paint to dry to get into the people and to fix the proportions on the front of the modern ambulance.

Back at the easel today...






















Worked on another mural study today - lots more yet to figure out and put into it, worked until all I was doing was getting my hand and arm into wet paint...letting it sit overnight to dry for now. Then, to relax, I started a wolf....
