One of the nice things about working in the garage on a sunny spring day is that my littlest gets to play in the front yard (which she doesn't normally get to do). Although her big sisters are usually with her, there's a nice big window so I can keep an eye on her and she has her boundaries so that she's stays within that window of sight - of course, that's also the window where crane flies go to die this time of year. They were all over, stuck between the glass and the screen or in webs in the corners. So, I had to clean up that disgusting mess, too - YUCK! But, it's fun to see my bouncing beauty enjoying the sunshine.
Now, I can't wait to actually start painting - maybe I'll get to do that tomorrow. Hopefully, I'll get at least one painting done this week and still have some family time. In the meantime, my painting looks a little freaky with all of the test spots created as searched for the right base colors, highlights and shadows.
