and here I am starting to put paint down. Look by my foot and you will kind of see what I was going for. I got these plastic plates at goodwill too, and I didn't need them for anything, but I loved the flower on them and knew I wanted to paint them on something. So I used the plate as a reference. You will also notice me painting by lamplight. I would like to say this is some artsy fartsy thing, but alas its just lazy me not wanting to get up and turn on a bunch of lights. (I yell at my kids for reading in the dark, but I paint in the dark all the time.)
Here is one of the first coats
getting closer...you can see my reference plate......:)
