Bentleyville Day 14





I've been working on this tall youngster in the back. I'd say he's about half right. Foolishly, I was taking my original photo around and working off of it. Even outside. Then it started to curl up, and I got pretty frightened that if I didn't put it back in it's folder I was going to end up with some serious damage to my precious artifact. So now I am working from a quick printout and even if it's not true, I feel the resolution is worse. And it's making me grumpy.

I can't believe how much you have finished, it looks so real it's incredible.

If there were still a Saturday Evening Post, this would definitely belong on the cover.

I like the tall youngster. He feels sort of Jimmy Stewart-ish to me. (Not in his looks, but his personality.)

I haven't been able to read blogs for awhile and wow, your painting is coming along. You are doing such a fantastic job with this.

Hope your move went smoothly.
