I took a different picture of Geordie the last time we saw him and worked on a painting from that picture for a bit, set it aside when frustrated and worked on it again.
I bought a different fixative and sprayed it and then realized that his tongue was not in the right position and so the whole picture looks somewhat off.
By this time I was sick of trying to get Geordie to look right, so set both his pictures aside for a week or so.
Today I got them out and tried to lighten up the first one and then resprayed it. I looked at the second one and decided that there really wasn't much I could do about the bad tongue placement as the white would never cover up the pink that was already fixed in place.
I threw up the white surrender flag and consider them finished. After today no one other than me ever has to see them so I will just chalk them up to experience.

I had my sister send me a picture of her dog Zoe who is another one of my favorite animals. She is, (I think) a Golden Retriever. I am not too good at my dog breeds. Anyway Zoe is going to be my next attempt. Wish me luck.
Here is her picture. She is such a sweetheart.
The registration is on for the next set of classes at the Casa de la Cultura so I went the other day and signed up for the class I want. Class starts on February 1 st and I am ready. I have my photo chosen for the view I want to paint and I have purchased the size of canvas that I want. My stuff is ready to pack in my bag and be off back to school. Can you tell that I am raring to go?
The first FAOT concert is on here tomorrow night, it is a "pocket" opera. I am not sure if I am going or not, Roy doesn't want to go, so I will see.
