Progress and Priorities

Deadlines for shows, competitions and my open studio tour are looming.  I have to prioritize so the store is on hold–still putting in taxes and shipping.  I took some time to work on the amazingly busy Green Heron today.  WHAT WAS I THINKING when I chose to paint this!  There is so much going on in its feathers it took a while to be able to zone in on the pattern, where feathers begin and end and get the proper ratio and proportion.  Whew, I think I have all the major proportion changes made on its back (the head will get larger when I paint it).

Green Heron--midway done.
Green Heron–midway done.

I just wanted you to see that I am working. I won’t get back to this till Friday–spending the day with my granddaughter tomorrow–My plans, have this done by the end of the weekend so it can be put it away to dry.  Then get it back out for a final stare and touch up before photographing and entering in a competition.
