Just when you think you’re out, they pull you back in

I spoke too soon. I announced that I had finished painting all of the images in my book, but today I found one more picture that I just might want to use. Maybe I will and maybe I won’t. It could be that I’m just attached to this picture because I spent so much time figuring out how to draw bicycle spokes.

I got half way through painting and realized that today, Sunday, is al fresco drawing day. I dropped everything, got my pencil and sketch pad and spent an hour sketching the flagstone walkway in my backyard. I call it the Cat Walk because it’s a major thoroughfare for the neighborhood cats. In the end I didn’t complete my painting. What you see below is a work in progress.
