Day Four, Grapefruit Mural, Clearwater, Florida: Refinement

Today I feel like things are finally coming together. I still have much more refinement to do on both panels, but that might have to wait a bit. It looks like the bad weather that has been sweeping through the midlands (my sympathies) is now due here. Consequently I might not be back to the walls until next week. We’ll see…

I hope you all are well and happy. When you have a moment, do check in and let me know how you’re treating life. 😀

Love,

Day Three, Grapefruit Mural, Clearwater, Florida: Coming to Life

Day 3 in the lovely Florida sun. It’s quite beautiful out as long as you can withstand the high temperature…in the direct sun..for hours. I happen to like it (as long as there’s a breeze,) so no complaints here.

I worked on the two whole grapefruit today; one each on the two panels.

I’ll probably be working on the grapefruit halves tomorrow. Lots of reshaping and defining to do with these. All in all, I’m just happy the blobs are starting to come to life!

More tomorrow…

Day Two: The Grapefruit Mural, Clearwater, Florida: Adding Layers of Paint

Second day at the two-panel Grapefruit Mural. No refinement as yet; just applied some bright colors. At least they’re pretty blobs now. 😀 I’ll be back at it tomorrow!

Close-up of applying a second layer. I am primarily left-handed, but when it comes to painting I am ambidextrous

My Little Slice of Heaven

I wanted to share my special place—just a couple blocks from my home. It’s where I feel like I can connect with the rest of the world.

Wishing all my friends a wonderful weekend and Happy Easter. Be well!
