The Treasure Chest Progress Report!

I've been doing some work on Mary Lu's Treasure Chest. Full sheets (22" x 30") can be so intimidating to paint! The jewelry pieces are coming along. Right now, there's no shadows in there so you still have that floating effect.

I haven't had much time to paint lately so every minute I do, I work on this because it's late and I really want to get it finished for her. I have not been able to work on anything else until this is done - and I mean not been able. I have a major block for doing anything because I feel so badly that this is not yet finished.

Long holiday weekend coming up here in Canada so I should be able to finish it this weekend. As well as start some other things I"m itching to do and get back to some drawing!!! Have a great Labour Day Weekend, Canucks!

Here's a few closeup shots:

Deb, your painting is coming along beautifully. Although a labor intensive subject, it will no doubt be worth all the effort.

Thanks very much, Ann. Yes, it's very labour intensive with lots of detail but I'm trying to keep loose on it. Well, as loose as I can get. lol. Okay, moderately loose. Slightly loose. I'm liking it and hope Mary Lu does too when it's all done and she receives it. Thanks again for the comments and for looking at my blog, Ann!
