I am posting this so that I will feel pressure to finish it. I am painting a photo that I took about 25 years ago. I worked at the girls club of Birmingham for three summers. I would take the girls on field trips and conduct day camps. It was alot of fun because i worked with good friends and even my sister one summer. The girls enjoyed getting away from the club for special trips and days at an area camp. The girls were lining up to go to the pool in this picture.
I am painting this on a 24 x 36" canvas. Karin Jurick starts with the hardest part (I don't think anything is hard for her) so I am trying to do that by starting with the faces. If I can get them right I will be home free and enjoy painting the rest. So....here's hoping.
I also wanted to mention the beautiful watercolor above the monitor. My brother painted it several years ago. It is a picture of my husband's grandfather standing in a tobacco field. He is a very talented artist with no time to paint at the present. One day.
