Comin' Together

Here is our project slowly coming together.
I forgot how hard it was to paint on a canvas. I mean, I paint on heads for a living ;) I didn't think it would be that difficult.

The only other painting I've done is a boxer (fighter) for my dad. It was two fighters in the ring. He absolutely adores it. But I tell everyone else that my 3 year old nephew painted it....... ya, it's that bad!

Here's what our map looks like so far. Jon loves it! I think it looks awesome, but should still be in an elementary school classroom, not on our wall........ Who knows, I might be surprised and it could be the best painting in the world after we're done. Maybe some famous artist will see it and want to buy it from us.... (Ha, ya right Steph, keep dreamin'.)

I'm just happy it has turned out well, so far. And it has been really fun getting to do this together. Jon is so sweet, he said "you know I really like that it is not perfect, that the lines aren't straight and the colors aren't perfect." He's so good at looking at things positively.

Also.... So excited, my Sookie Stackhouse series came in the mail today! So I will be starting another vampire series.

Have a great Tuesday everyone!!
