As done as I can get it for now.

Okay, it's moist out and the piece needs to dry for approximately one billion hours. I might need to do some final little touches on it and possibly add another coat of polyurethane, but it's mostly finished. I will take better photos of it and explain the thought process and the title of the piece once it's dry. Happy 0th Birthday, Anna Marie! Or happy first day, I guess! 

Congrats to my brother Travis and his wife Jena on the birth of their daughter!

So, my brother and his wife just had their first child this morning, a lovely little girl by the name of Anna Marie! That's pretty darned awesome. To celebrate that and to give my brand spanking new niece a little gift, i'm going to paint her something today. Hopefully I will finish it by midnight. 

Anyway, if you want to follow along with my progress, check back at where I will be posting updates on the piece throughout the day.
