My Mural

I've been working this week on a mural for LDS family services (their adoption center). Anyway, I had done something else first, but then they told me they wanted it to look like it had been drawn by little kids. At first, I felt a little bugged that they hadn't told me that up front (before I'd spent time on these other sketches), but in the end, it was a great deal, since I have a very short window of good weather (next week the temps are supposed to drop down again), and this second design will be MUCH easier.

Other news: Lora is home from the hospital; I got hired to photograph a wedding in Hawaii (they're flying me out); I quit my job teaching at the DATC (I loved it, but I couldn't handle it - for now); I have clinical depression/anxiety due to hormone stuff (it's called PMDD - and it is treatable...yay!!!); I'm applying for my first credit card; I'm going to Mexico again in November to building houses with VIDA; and I'm madly in love with Dan. Of course, that last one isn't really "news" -- but I just like saying it anyway. He's the best, and has been an outstanding support and comfort during a really hard time...(thanks, hon).

Also: I've been asked to sing at my friend's baptism this next Sunday. Ahhh!!! I'll ruin it! Alas...

So, in closing, here's my mural sketches and a great random fact:

In his later years Pablo Picasso was not allowed to roam an art gallery unattended, for he had previously been discovered in the act of trying to improve on one of his old masterpieces.
