Yesterday was a long tough day.... To get this rush commission done on time, each day I must complete the application of a layer of paint to each canvas. And it has to be allowed to dry for at least 12-14 hours before I can add another layer. I prefer 24 hours between layers.
This second layer was very time-consuming and it took all day and into the night - over 12 hours of painting steady. I was aching all over, crabby, thoroughly exhausted and feeling like perhaps this step wasn't going to work the way I planned.
You have to love my hubby - he calls each night on his way home from work when he goes through the toll booth in Maine - and he offered to take me out to supper after he put in 12-hour workday himself so I wouldn't have to cook. I had just cleaned up and gotten in my jammies at 8 pm so we had an old stand-by for supper - spaghetti and butter with grated cheese.
This morning, hairdryer in hand, I dried parts of the canvases that were still tacky. I'll post today's work tomorrow...
