On the Way Home

This is the latest installment from Different Stokes challenge.  The original photo that Karin provided is below.  I had trouble with trying to get all three people working so small as I was working 6 x 6,  so I started over and figured I would try only one person, as this is only the 3rd person I have ever attempted to paint.  The original was so dark, on the one figure, so I brightened it up when I used only one person.

My Neighbor Rocks

Rob, our neighbor is a "peach" as my mother would say.  He is very handy with power tools.  He drove me to Home Depot to pick up full size sheets of hardboard with his truck.  After I did three coats of gesso on them in the garage, he and his Dad who was visiting took the sheets and cut them for me on his table saw.

I now have many assorted sizes of panels on which to paint.  It saved me loads of cash, if I had to buy them, and the cutting job was superb!

I should have taken a picture of the men at work but I totally forgot.

But I am so grateful for the help.  Thanks again Rob!
