I have not been as attentive to my blog as I had planned to be. My new fun project has been painting barns on frying pans. The project is almost finished. I am waiting for client approval. On the other hand the project consuming most of my time in June and July has been preparing the Crystal Lake Road McHenry house for market. Not art, but lots of painting, fixing, and loads of hard work. Now that it is listed I can get back to things like the frying pan project. I have more reference photos of clouds and sunflowers to work with. I also had a trip to Chicago Botanical Gardens and have loads of flower and Bonsai trees for reference. So lots of new work is planned.
