Working big -- more work on the small one

Today I've been working on my big portrait piece for
most of the day.  It is one of those slow, slow paintings.
It won't look that way when it's finished -- all loose and
easy, but it is.  Paint, look, leave the room, come back, change it.
Paint, leave the room, come back, change it -- you know the process.

To give myself a bit of a break I went back to this one,
which is definitely still a work in progress, but I like
the addition of the background clouds.

I hope you had a marvellous day.  It was a real March
day here.  When I was out for a few minutes, I saw a
man wearing shorts and a T-shirt walking his daschund.
The dog looked cold, but it was very warm and sunny.
Seconds later there was a cold wind, and the sky was
overcast.  And later today we had snow -- all gone

Have a loving all the changes day.
