Today has been filled with painting. It started off slow. But around ten I started working on the Trader Joe’s Mural. I painted the Humpback whale and some other stuff….and in all I put in 8 hours on the thing. Big murals take a LONG time. Who knew? Anyway. During my ‘after dinner break’ I made some homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. And since we can’t keep all of them around the house, we gifted a dozen to Brian, our upstairs neighbor. He even came down to the studio to check out the mural that I had worked on all day. Giving cookies is one of my favorite gifts….It just feels good to bake and bring joy to people with your baked goods.
This painting was a blast. I love painting the spots on a turtle. In fact, without the spots….it looks like some weird alien creature. The spots make the turtle….the stripes do indeed make the zebra. I painted this painting this morning….not last night. After working on the mural all day it was just too much to paint an extra 2 hours. So here it is a few hours late. Take care.
This painting was bought by Ally Wong Pagatpatan! Thanks Ally!
