Jan's Painting ... Back in Progress

I had to put Jan's Painting on hold (with her blessing) until I got the heart done for the fundraiser. I've started working on it again today. The first photo is what I started with this morning, and the second is what I did with it today. ( New photo inserted of updated work 9-29-13).

Starting New

My old blog is acting up, so I am starting new today. I think it is a good time for a new beginning, my son if away at college, and a new stage in my life is underway. It's official... we are now empty nesters! HOLY COW! How did that happen so fast!

I just finished a really big project I have been working on for about six weeks. I painted a HUGE heart. It's five feet all and wide. It's for the "Have a Heart" fundraiser at Elkhart General Hospital. They commissioned 20 artists to paint these hearts, and they will be displayed around the city of Elkhart. There will be a big gala on Valentines Day 2014 and the Hearts will be auctioned off. The hospital will be sending someone out to pick up the heart soon, they will take it and spray something on it to protect it, and then it will be displayed somewhere... I don't know where yet, but when it is in it's new temporary home, I will go and take photos and even get one of myself with it. In the mean-time... the photo at the top of this page is what the finished heart looks like right now.
