Can you believe it, I am still trying to finish this piece. Unbelievable. The weather is overcast, the light is dismal, but I will soldier on. I am ready to start a new piece and have played with the sketches. I think it might be fun to do this next piece on YUPO. I have skads of YUPO from Mark's workshop, and only one piece of watercolor paper left. It might be good as a study.
I did see where DAD trucking had cashed my check, and so checked my mailbox for the postcard I had painted for DAD to return to me, and it had arrived. So what I know is that the painting was unpacked late last week, and must assume since I haven't heard anything that it arrived undamaged. That would be great. Who was it that wrote that book about doing the postcards and sending them to yourself? I attended a workshop that he was taking.... George Wittenberg! Anyway, brilliant idea. Quite fun when it shows up, but the postmark either was absorbed by the paper or smeared. That was unfortunate, but the barcode at the bottom held up. Nice memento.
