Paint on mirror, September 3, 2014.

This weekend I took a fifteen-year-old painting out of storage and decided to make a few corrections. I have always considered this one to be unfinished and in need of attention, so I set aside some time over the past few days to paint like it’s 1999. I’ll return to the present day soon, though.

This should keep me occupied for the next week or so. I’m building a shed to store some of the things that are in the garage, with the intention of eventually turning the garage into a painting studio. No idea when I’ll actually be able to afford to do that. Meanwhile, dandelions add a rustic look to the premises.

Almost ready to go back into the frame.

Darker Cluster 2000. Watercolor and colored pencil on paper, 11.25 x 11.25 inches.
This is a much better reproduction of an older painting I posted a week ago. I took it out of its frame to clean the glass and mat board.
