Today, as all Mondays lately, we painted in the south meeting room of the Community Center, as the Florida Room is used on Mondays. Although logistically it is a bit less convenient, the light is better, especially when we lift them onto chairs and place them against the dividing wall opposite the windows. Less stress on the back too when painting the lower area of the panels.
Got there at 8:30, and by 9:15 I was painting. Was anxious to paint from the wonderful array of critters that I had spnt hours downloading onto my laptop yesterday. Spent quite a while trying to get them up before I finally realized that my portable storage device was dead. Since getting the laptop on Craig's List it has saved me from carting a pile of heavy books in as reference. So I painted today from my head, and in spite of that was able to complete the transition from Panel #1 to Panel #2, and refine the dead log and painting a skunk's rear-end sticking out of it, which I will refine later, painting in more foliage at water's edge and putting the final touches and patches of grass on the scrub pathway. Getting pretty close to finishing this panel. Stop back on Friday and se baby skunks skipping out of the other end of the log.
