I think I'm done...

It probably doesn't look too different from the previous photo of it, and there isn't a huge difference. I glazed the middle part with a very pale turquoise, and I highlighted the edges of the moths a bit, I think that was it. Color wise, it's a bit closer to the truth than the previous photo, which I hadn't adjusted. I'm just taking the pictures with a snapshot camera and one light, so not the best conditions.

Didn't spend a whole lot of time in the studio today, just a couple of hours. Worked on this and the new painting too (but no picture). The morning was spent at the theater, attending the Met HD broadcast of Puccini's Il Trittico, 3 one-act operas. There was a technical problem for the first act and the audio was delayed from the video by about a second. I had to not look at the singers' faces to get through it. They fixed it during intermission; thank goodness.

Then we installed the raised vegetable bed! Part way. The ground has a bit of a slope, and we'll need to add extra boards on 2 sides; that will happen tomorrow, maybe. Then I can install the chicken wires on the bottom, put the compost back in there, and top it off with clean fresh top soil.

Gorgeous. This style of yours always reminds me of the complicated layers of old wallpaper in the abandoned houses my mother, sister and I would explore from time to time in the Midwest. Then the moth reminds me that life is happening right now.
