On the easel at this time, a 20" x 28" acrylic on canvas painting. I am enjoying the detail work in this one. The most recent image (above) is at the one hundred and twenty six hour stage...only a few hours of fussing to go. It is now signed. I will stop in four hours.
Monday, April 30th.
Spent two more hours on the rope today and decided to sign the painting, so I'm alnmost there. My wife Danie arrives home tomorrow evening, I planned to have it done by her arrival home...just made it !
Saturday, April 28th .
Today I am still painting the final detail on cork float , the biggest challenge. I probably have another 11 hours to go. One hundred and nineteen hours of brush-in-hand time clocked as of today. Final images will be posted once they come out of the camera !!
Planned completion date is still . . . . 30 April 2001.
Looks like I might just make it . . . . . COMPLETED.
Two hours to spare !
Note: A word to the wise...change positions often when painting for long periods...I am now suffering from "Frozen Shoulder" as a result of painting "Flotsam" ;-(
Believe it or not, planning a similar painting to this one, will commence the project in March 2008 - The canvas is on easel already!! I wanted to do it sooner...but, you know how it is!!
