Little by little I'm getting the characters done. Since I'm working on a deadline (that pays) I have to put aside working on this painting for my other illustration work. A very good friend from Michigan was staying at our home over the weekend, and while she was busy "farming" on her laptop I was painting this - sitting side by side doing what we both enjoy doing in silence. Now that's the true comfort of a good friendship!
Putting colors and patterns together makes the creative process even more interesting!
