I am so so happy these are finally done. Well, the paintings have been done for a while now, it was just the panels that needed finishing up. And since I am afraid of power tools (why do they have to be so loud?), I got to fine tune my nagging skills as Evan worked on finishing them.
I did the square foot paintings a few years ago as part of a school assignment, and the cloud painting, inspired by a Maynard Dixon documentary, was finished just after we moved here (almost two years ago exactly!). It was actually the painting that made me go into early retirement, but I am starting to like it better now.
p.s. I found a new painting varnish that is as shiny as a piece of hard candy and I LOVE it, but it makes for very reflective photos.
