See the guilty party! Riiight there...Ugg..cute isnt she....
It did end up staying on the porch for a few days tho as once the front door was opened, it was abandoned right there at the the sight of the birthday toy we had bought for our very favorite 1 year old lil girl, (who's party was the next day) chewed to bits and scattered all over the living room....Priorities took precedent and this table was left, dogs were chased, yelled at, then grounded. Thank you to our crazy bea-u-ti-ful Calgary weather, no damage was done by the elements....Once she did make it inside, all of a sudden she was finshed. 24 hours DONE. I painted the details by hand because I tried the stencil thing, but I didnt like how it looked like a stencil thing, so I did it all by hand
The table actually doesnt lean to the right.....I do. Im always crooked.
Now, wait. Normally....I dont have the time nor attention span to knock out a detailed piece in such a short ridiculous time...BUT....well, I joined a Bootcamp class to whip my butt into bikini (or just a bathsuit, Im not picky) shape by January 15th....and that Bootcamp class started this week. Now, I thought I was in pretty good, ok shape. I walk alot, love love to ride my cruiser bike, haul laundry every day up 3 flights of stairs...but the bootcamp whooped me. I have never been in such pain..ever. Everything hurt. walking, standing, sitting, laying..
I painted this an "opps paint" sorta butter-y yellow color with another "oops paint" mustard yellow. The black in the photo's are actually a gray in real life and after some light sanding down everywhere...I glazed with burnt umber and Love...for Eddie Vedder......and for glaze....and for this finished piece..
**Sidenote** I also need to give credit to my amazing friend J, to whom I also maintained a very overdue but very laugh out loud conversation with for a large duration of painting this.Thank you for that. Did I mention I was down in my basement alone..cold...with an extremely large spider my Bunny trapped in a jar starring me down? Your company was very appreciated and I have no doubt that some inspiration also came from that and maybe, perhaps not just from my Pearl Jam ipod.**
