Sweet Kitty 2 is finished!

Whew!  This was one of those paintings that just kept going and going.  I would look at it and think "yes, I am finished."  But then, I would see something....something small... something that would just take a moment.  And then, one brushstroke would lead to another, then another...  Yes, I am sure you know what I mean.  :-)

I finally finished the whiskers last night and signed it.  NO more painting on Sweet Kitty 2 allowed!

I am debating on my next project.  I have several ideas mulling around in my head... another close up of flowers, a portrait, a still life, another kitten picture (Wait! Maybe not another kitten picture.)  I do have some illustrations that I need to do for a children's book.  And yes, I need to get to them soon. But I have been waiting for the studio to be completed so I can set up my new drafting table.

Bert and I worked on the studio yesterday.  It was good to be part of the actual building process.  The inspector came and we won't need another inspection until it is completed.  That in itself is exciting.

Today Bert is picking up the inulation that we need for the walls.  Unless he puts it up sooner, we will be hanging the insulation on Thursday.

I can hardly wait to get out there and get everything set up!  I plan to have my new drafting table set up, my pastel station,  my studio easel, a flat work surface to use for framing, pattern assembly (for my pattern company), and fabric layout for my quilting and sewing.  Needless to say, I will post pictures.

Well, here is Sweet Kitty 2...
