I have had a great day painting. I do not consider myself a painter, per se, but I was today. I decided to turn my orbs into round maps and I started with the lower one. I have a calendar of antique maps and I took a round one as inspiration when I sketched out the shapes on my piece. Since the map I was using was of the Artic (a rendering from the 1500’s) I guess you could say this is a statement about global warming! I digress. I have not done any detail work but I am thrilled with the was my map is progressing. I will probably do the top orb before I get to the details. I took a picture of the entire piece and then a detail so you can see my evolving map up close. I have to stop for today but I can’t wait to continue tomorrow.
