Painting the moose....

Instead of painting.....
















Spent some time in the close presence of a broad-winged hawk this morning....then off to the Gallery then the Green Mountain Natl Forest for some inspiration.....gorgeous day, dry, with fluffy clouds, didn't get over 72....perfect! Now to paint.....

Another loon....












My loons are sold out, starting to replenish...

NOW Melanie is finished : )



Tuesday morning mural work...














I decided the barn will be to the right rear of the house, will add a fence for horses....it will make it seem more like Somers....also am adding a volunteer's vehicle on the road to the left of the new ambulance. Most importantly, I made the road more narrow, more accurate for looking at it from the side angle.

Melanie....finished

Mural ghosts....













I added some tree shadows and couldn't resist getting the 1st coat of yellow and red on the new ambulance....then with white paint I ghosted in a house and barn, Lifestar, EMT's and some spectators in both bottom corners....that gives me a chance to sit back and look at it on the computer screen before I make them a permanent part of the painting.
