I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
I was able to work on the mural this weekend, wohoo! I'm feeling good that I'll get this project done before the summer (then I can get outside and do some yard work).
What's left is the grass and hill (the green you see is the first coat of "grass & leaves"), the wood around Pooh Bears doorway, the background sky, the rest of the bark on his log, Pooh's fur and the note in the doorway.
We decided to put Drew's birth information on the note pinned in the doorway (you know, his bday, weight, height, length and time he was born). Also, I started doing the detail in the bark on the log Winnie is resting on and stumbled across a great idea. Since the bark detail is swirly, I will add Drew's close relatives zodiac symbols into the bark and make it a sort of family tree. When I showed Jeff and my FIL this on the log (the one's I started with), they couldn't see it too well. I explained that it's suppost to blend and those who know its there will be able to spot them. Once I have the rest of the clan in there, I'll try and share a picture.
I feel really good about what I was able to accomplish this weekend. Here's to another productive weekend!!
