For weeks I have been working on a painting to go in the Baby's nursery. Now that we are getting close I have stepped up my efforts. I'm working on a 30" x 40" canvas, the largest I have ever painted. It is an illustration of a made up event - it is Ashby at a garden birthday party with her many animal friends....birds, rabbits, mice, snails and a squirrel. Here are some shots of it in progress, and shots of me working on it this morning with a little help from my assistant. I should finish it tonight and will post images of the finished piece.
