Now for the last stretch.




I haven't been posting frequently on my blog lately but I have had quite a few things that need my attention and my painting has been coming along a little faster I feel, but maybe not as fast as I would like it to. I am sure I will still need to tweak the parts I have worked on, but at least I can post the painting with the color on the peaches now, and I am ready to start what I think will be the hardest part. The tissue paper! I have no idea how I will get it to look translucent but fortunately I have an incredible mentor that shows me how to solve these problems, like magic.


I have also been quite busy getting the ranch house ready for the Michael Newberry Workshop on the 5th of August. This will be another incredible experience for me and a great pleasure to have Michael in our home, and those taking the Plein Air workshop.


A pleasant surprise came this week in an email with a link to Michael Newberry's blog. It will be fun checking frequently for his new work that always shows a variety of Oil Masterpieces, Pastels, Charcoals and Plein Air.

Thank you for visiting Stacy, I have started the tissue paper and it seems easier than I thought. I hope I didn't speak too soon. :)

Eating a lot of peach cobbler lately?
I know you must be focusing on the tissue now, but it must taste extra good to know that you are on the final stages. Can't wait to see it in person.

Thank you Anita, I'm working on the tissue paper now, just inch by inch.
