Painting of the Week


Taking this picture was a bit difficult - trying to get it all in the frame and leave out the light fixture in Jesse's room. I did not crop the edges before publishing the picture so that you can see how I tape the butcher paper to the wall. Each sheet of butcher paper is taped together to make the 6'x7' painting. I had some other shots from different angles, but this was probably the best for showing the entire painting. Jesse painted the sky and water, which was a big help. There are a few things that I will tweak today before sending it to the banquet this afternoon. It is amazing what taking a picture of your painting will do - you see things that need a bit of help.

Amazing. I looked at the image three times and couldn't see any seams. Excellent!

Did I ever tell you that when TSMP and I were in London she worked for the DoD school on the air station where we lived? And one of the teachers was a long-time expat who had an apartment in Paris? And that he loaned that apartment out to friends? The only downside was it was on the fifth floor and there wasn't an elevator. But we were (relatively) young...

Me, too!

Lou, that is one lovely painting. Remarkable! Have you done any murals? Forgive me if you've discussed this before and I missed it.
