It was hard to photograph due to the glare. I used a lot of Damar Varnish last night. I was afraid the paint was going to slide off the surface from the honey like medium mixed in the paint. It was a great surprise this morning when I went out to the studio that the paint did not run. Just a small drip from the Lilly pad umbrella the little fish is holding. The Globe looks like a gem, like something very precious and rare. It looks cooler than it photographed. I am encouraged! It is a slow process painting on a round surface. I think the fact that I have to put the paint down so carefully, has helped me be more thoughtful. I can't wait to start another one! Onward!
