It was so nice today. It reached all the way up to 59 degrees and the sun was out in full effect.
Michael's birthday ended up being really fun too. We have a big fire pit in the back of our house, and all our neighbors came out and we drank beer and and toasted smores. Awesome.
I have been working working working. Michael made these beautiful panels made from red oak. I didn't have the heart to completely paint them. The surface and the texture is absolutely gorgeous, so I partially painted them. I love painting the steal bridge, and the 405 water tower...but I get kinda bored doing it sometimes. This was a nice change, and although I think they might look a little Urban Outfitters, I am pretty pleased as to how they turned out. I almost didn't finish them because I thought they looked a little bit too much like "hipster art", but Michael told me to stop being ridiculous and just go for it. So I did.
The other paintings are slow going. I didn't realize that I left the marble dust that I need for making gesso in the truck. The same truck that is still in the shop...so...yeah. Tomorrow I am going to get a good start on them.
Overall a great weekend :)
