I’ve been glued to my stocking for three weeks now, and this is what I have to show for it. I’m extremely excited for the progress I’ve made, the area I’ve covered and the pieces I still have yet to finish. To see my little sketch and painting come to life like this is so rewarding, and I’m still looking forward to the stockings I promised my family (that’s a good sign, right?). Up next is filling in the rest of the background, and then I’m treating myself to starting the picture inside the gold oval. I’m saving the name area for last simply because I have to rework my guidelines a bit with paint before I start.
What do you think? Worthy of our future fireplace mantel?
