Creating paintings for my "Beasts of Burden" series is challenging. This one has more of a storybook feeling than I had intended, but I persist. One more to go this week... In unrelated news, the kitchen renovation goes on. I've started scraping wallpaper and doncha know it's not just one layer of super glued vinyl glory, it's two! Fortunately, there's isn't that much of it. Looking forward to picking back splash tiles and cabinet hardware.
