Progress on my cups



As promised, a progress update on my latest painting. I laid down the drawing on Friday, and never touched it again until today. I typically like to work wet in wet, however on these bigger ones, it is tough to do that. I will have to see how it will all work out. This stage is always a tough one. The painting looks so ugly, but its the potential that keeps me at it. Stay tuned for more progress photos.

On a sad note our family pet of 15 years passed away last night. He had a good life, this photo was taken during better times. Good bye old friend, you will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear that your beloved cat died last night...I love cats, especially tabbies...

On a happier note, your cups are really taking shape. The colours are rich and inviting...nice beginnings.

It is always hard when you lose a member of the family. Sorry about your puddy......

The cups are looking good. It is going to be a good one.

She was a beauty and is missed.
Your work is very strong!
