Sigh. Sometimes the best intentions get waylaid druing the course of life! Although I have finally managed to get my first batch of RSM grenadiers base coated with acrylic gesso and then undercoated with black acrylic paint, I've not been able to get to the actual painting this week as hoped. Now, it's early Saturday morning, and I've got to catch the shuttle up to O'Hare in Chicago in about 90 minutes for an early afternoon flight. I'll be gone for a week.
"A week without painting he says. Can he survive? Or will it feel as if he's got bugs crawling all over his skin?"
Well, I don't know. We'll have to see. ;-) But maybe a few days away are good? Sort of an enforced break, which hopefully will allow me to return full of new painting vigor, all fired up and ready to go. Until then, Stollen's Leib (Grand Duchess Sonja's Own) Grenadiers remain at attention on my painting/radio desk.
