Piano Update June 28th

Counting down, I actually have more of this done than I show here, and I do only have two, yes, two days left.

Oh, Angela, I'm working like CRAZY, to finish this. I can hardly wait myself to see this all together.

The top photo is the piano assembled. The photo on the bottom left is in my studio assembled on a table. The last two photos are the sides of the piece. I actually put paint on the sides a bit today. 

Oh, Monday, Tuesday, one of those two days I will give you the full view.

Okay, gotta go back to work.

"Salvo's Martini" ---Sold

8"x6" oil on canvas panel
A finished little commission piece, painted especially for Salvo. This special surprise did surprise him. The painting was still wet on Sunday afternoon and the presentation was that evening! So I carefully put this piece in a cigar box and labeled the outside of the box with little instructions on how to open it.

Here is the photo Andrea took with Salvo and his painting.
Don't you just love it when a plan comes together!

More on the piano later.

Piano update June 18th

June 18th, the top panel is pretty much finished. 
This is June 15th, working out a few color combinations.
Last week, counting Sunday, I finished a couple of "must finish" commissions and taught a few painting classes. Now, it's time to finish the piano. It must be finished June 29th, ten days.

Getting the colors figured out and how to control my glitter application and I'm good to go, but it is a process. Today, I will try to work out the color scheme for the lower buildings.

In the mean time, last Thursday Kristen featured me in her weekly blog post. You can check it out here, there may be some things that you didn't know about me.  : )

Catch up more soon.

Piano June 9th

Piano pieces June 9th
Piano update. Today, I put more gesso and paint on the three pieces I have in my studio. Once I get the color established on the pieces I have here, I'll put them on the piano and finish the job.

Before I go for now, I going to put the link to the "Go Ahead & Play" project here. This is why I'm painting a piano.

More later...   : )

Saturday's Cookies and Canvas Painters

How about all the creativity going on here. These young painters chose their own colors and bedazzling for the hermit crab shell.

This is Ella with her painting. She named this little guy "Hurry, like hurry up let's go swimming".

Today is the first day of June!

Have a wonderful weekend.
