A friend of mine hung out with Baby this morning so I could hammer out some more progress on the box. This last side (facing the stream) has a weird texture to it so the look of this painting is a little different than the front. Since there are so many ‘bumps’ I really have to brush back and forth a lot to get the color in – blending the paint more than I like. I prefer to leave it big and chunky (Teddi words for ‘bold’ and ‘loose’). It also makes it harder to get nice hard edges – something I’m going to be touching up this weekend.
Success! I got 2/3 done with the last side, and will now be able to wrap it all up this weekend. There’s no deadline really, I just want to finish it before it gets too chilly here. Come to City Park Saturday and chat with me while I put the finishing touches on this year’s transformer cabinet!
The grass was wet so I camped out on a blanket this morning.
