Painting Day 5

Okay, here is the finished piece. I know it doesn't look much different from the last one, but I finished up the red dress and tried straightening out the letters a bit. It's really hard to do lettering on swaying vinyl 10 feet above a cement floor, especially when you start feeling light-headed because you're holding your breath to paint a straight line. I got up at 5:20 a.m. and left the house at 6 a.m. so I could beat the Monday morning rush hour. Unfortunately, it was still dark when I got to the gallery, so I had to lug lights around so I could see to paint. I'm pretty happy with the results, but yesterday I found out that I have to paint this image a third time on a 37" x 48" vinyl so it can be hung at the show. And since the show's in a month, and I'm out of town for a week and my son's visiting me for a week, that leaves about one and a half weeks to paint Kim Has a Good Skip AGAIN! I'm really starting to not like me.
