Just in time to be the only wet painting early this afternoon among the houseful of dry and varnished ones for a special post-Open House guest.
Just in time to be seen from the main floor foyer peeking out the corner of an upstairs bedroom. This might be a first. Our guest went straight up the stairs to see and "Rooster" soon became hers. Well, sort of. It now has to dry before delivery.

She also brought objects for a Christmas-themed still life commissioned painting that I can't wait to start. The set up has taken over a corner of my kitchen.
It was a full day of painting. Hooray! Lots of good things happening in my spruced up (it's temporary, I'm sure) home studio.
