Almost done, almost

Before........................


during..............................


and after.

It might not look that different. I went and purchased some more paint today. The red I used tonight was a dark cherry color. Almost a reddish brown. The red in the first painting was like a fire engine red. I feel the latter red works so much better. I am still not completely sold on the light blue, but I will see how I feel about it in the morning. The lighting in our kitchen is horrible. Can't wait for the new lighting when Dean has some time to work on the kitchen again. I also added the dark cherry color to the edges. Painting the edges makes everything look more polished. I will be adding a couple coats of varnish tomorrow while the girls are napping. I wanted to finish this tonight, but last night Aris was up most of the night. I was so tired today. I took a nap with the girls instead of painting. I will for sure be finish by tomorrow. I also have to do the sunflower painting by Thursday. Almost freaking out, but not quite.

Wow!!! I love the colors! What's its fate now that it's finished? Do you have a space on a wall earmarked for it, or does it already have a second home (the painful departure of so many art pieces). -- Eliza
