Big day Wednesday. While cleaning and wet sanding this little gem, I had to keep telling myself, "You're painting a piano, not restoring it." I may have gotten carried away cleaning, oh well, it made me feel better.
I'll touch back later, like maybe I should tell you why I'm painting this piano.

I sanded and sketched on the big three pieces faux assembled in my studio.
Wednesday I'll get a chance to look at the pieces back on the piano.

One of the studies from the "After Myrtle Beach" will be showing up in the future, I hope around the August area of time.
Gotta get painting. Enjoy your day.

"Before Myrtle Beach"
|Mixed media on paper (forgot to measure 15"x22" maybe)|
"After Myrtle Beach"
|Water media on paper (I think 22"x30")|
In March, I went to a water media workshop in Myrtle Beach and got myself abstracted. You can see the above before and after paintings. Some of the patrons at the open house thought it was the martini's that caused the crazy looking after painting. It really wasn't that easy.
Lately, I've been painting larger, and larger paintings take a little longer to finish. My friend Myra, suggested that I show some "in progress" images. She's right, so I will work toward that goal and try not to be such a stranger.
Beautiful day today, enjoy!

|12"x16" Mixed media on paper mounted on canvas|
Just delivered this painting today, so I feel it's safe to post now. This coffee cup is a gift and I didn't want to take any chances to let the cup out of the bag!
The background has coffee commodity charts in there. The letters KC is the coffee symbol and the H is for March, so this is really a 2003 March Coffee symbol. TMI, right? Although with all the coffee cup paintings I've done, maybe it is number 103! You know, I think it is, how fun it that!
Have a great coffee day.
