I spent another hour painting the items on my desk and keeping true to the detail.

My “Happy Wife Happy Life” block is going to be giving me trouble as I’ve never painted lettering. Normally I just ignore lettering or just do some kinda of abstract smudge in place of letters. But, this time I need to paint the letters and it is going to be difficult. I started the placement of the letters but I’m going to have to wait for the current layer of paint to dry before doing the lettering.

  1. haha, after my last comment, this is hilarious to mention your little sign.
    I have seen this finished and I love it so much, but I am really enjoying watching it come all together.

My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
