The thrill of finishing up

Here's what I'm working on.  I'll tell you more tomorrow
when I hope to be all finished -- every last detail.  But I
am so close in this image.

I wish I could have posted more on my blog, but painting
has filled my days lately.  And I admit that's a pretty
wonderful way to spend my time, even when I am nervous
from time to time and trying to figure things out, and
occupied night and day with thoughts of where it is, and
where it's going.

As another artist said to me today -- "Aren't we lucky!"
I can't imagine a life without a serious passion.

A toast to all my fellow artists.  I will try to catch up --
soon.  But for now back to painting.


Have a loving-what-you-do day.

Hi Verna,

Thank you so much. Not much different in the final analysis, and it starts its journey to
the Netherlands today.

I will post it again tonight -- not to bore you -- but I'll also show the progress on my painting for the Louvre in October.
Head on out here in September Verna. That would be fun!

XOXOXOXOXO Barbara

Thank you so much Sally,

The changes I made I realize are minimal, but nonetheless it's done and off
to the shipper! Such a good feeling!
