AYU Art Group for November

We had our get together today. I decided to haul out another old project that hadn’t been touched in a while. I started this at Mad Hatters sometime earlier this year. I could go look up the dates… but I’m not going to.

Anyhow, I knew that this piece needed work, but there were things that I really liked about it. Which sometimes can cause a little bit of paralysis on my part and cause the painting to just wind up abandoned.

This is what I started with today:

I had forgotten (somehow?) to bring my disposable palette pad with me. So I wandered around the shop looking for a make shift palette.

I hadn’t put any thought into how I was going to get this back home after I had worked on it with both Jessie and I in the car. So I decided to just leave it at the shop until Tuesday to dry some and make it easier to transport. I asked Jess to make a “Wet Paint” sign for me while I was cleaning up.

She went above and beyond and made me a sign that NO ONE could possibly miss:

As impressed as I was, Jess thought that it needed a little bit more work:

and the finished product:

this little guy is by far my favorite part:

That’s it for tonight. Tomorrow is painting class, so hopefully I will have something more for you tomorrow.
