Well, the holidays are over and it's back to work for us. Christine is in the process of moving and had some commitments, so there was just Dawn Mill and myself for today. My day was somewhat broken up with three separate appointments in which I was able to paint inbetween those times. By 3:30 we both had to leave, but wished we could stay and paint a few hours more. Once we get our rhythm going (i.e., set up, paint mixed, images positioned, brush to canvas, etc.) it's so hard to stop. I am really getting fond of the flow and convenience of acrylics, as compared to oils. I've painted with Dawn at times when she's used oil with quite a masterly touch, however she always goes back to acrylic and I'm beginning to understand why.
Anyway, today's progress was limited, however Dawn got some troublesome sections pretty much completed. We both aren't fond of painting buildings, so it was good that Dawn got that one out of the way. She has managed to make them look fabulous on the canvas, with some creative foliage here and there--even to spiffing up an ugly parking lot!
