Here’s April’s monthly newsletter. Despite the fact that all shows and classes are cancelled there’s always something to do around the studio! More spider tomorrow!!!
I wasn’t happy with the shadows, still. Thought they were too dark. I experimented with going over some with a thinned down layer of Kilz2.
Well, I’m saying spider but I’m actually still on the web. No pun intended.
Didn’t get a lot of chance to work on it today – other errands had to take precedence. I started work on the shadows. Spent a lot of time color mixing.
So, back to the mixing pots in the studio. I’m doing the mural using some craft paint that I was given – I’m going to paint something new in a year or two so not worried about longevity. Amazing how difficult getting a lighter shade was.
A little bit of progress on the spider mural today.
Right down to the details on the wall is a different story. The surface is really rough and not easy to paint on.
Having gotten to the point in life where I can order from the senior menu, I was eligible to enter the 55+ show “Visions: A gathering of Elders”, and this was it turned out the last time I was able to go to a gathering before the world imploded. True that people were observing precautions such as elbow bumps vs. handshakes, but otherwise it seems that the elder wisdom was the same as for having a bad cold. Don’t cough on people, and go home and feel sorry for yourself for two weeks.
