Today I arrived a little late, doctor's appt, and Dawn was already set up and ready to paint. I was nursing a bruised face due to walking into our sliding glass door last night. Dumb. Took a while but I eventually got into the groove, and began chalking in sandhill cranes - mama, papa and baby. Been wanting to do that for weeks! Had a visit from Doug Bruce of Vero Beach Magazine who took some pictures of us painting on the mural, so I guess they'll do a little blurb. My friend Kathy Richter came by with her husband and took some pictures.
But first, Dawn worked on some details of panel #3, the first panel to look really good a while back. Now they all look pretty good, and every additional touch we do just makes them better. Still not finished though with some of the basics on several panels, but painting in the critters and details sure is fun.
Dawn painted in an armadillo, dragonfly, lizard and some butterflies, and touched up the lights and shadows in the water on Panels #3 and #4. Her and Christine worked for a time on harmonizing their adjoining panels.

We hope you enjoyed looking at this blog. This will be our last painting session until January 6th or 9th, as we are taking a break for the holidays. And so we will pick this back up at that time. Until then, Dawn, Christine and I wish you a Merry Christmas, and a very happy New Year.
