Well, there is a first for everything. I got the commission completed at 5:30am today, after 22 hours which started yesterday at 7:30am... after many days of 12-14 hours stretches. Exhausted doesn't quite describe it, but too wired to sleep. Only managed 2 hours of sleep after, as I have much to do today, first getting the second coat of varnish done asap in the hope that it will dry in time to ship tomorrow. I also have to get the crate up from my van to sort out how I'm going to set up the liner etc. By the time I got the materials to create the liner in the crate, I get to start working on it this late in the day. I just have to push through the exhaustion yet again as I have to call Fed Ex early tomorrow morning.
Won't be able to get a decent pic of this one as I've had to add the 1st coat of varnish it as I went along, and once the varnish is on, there is no way to take a pic without glare.
Am glad that my mother and my two sisters who live in Winnipeg are able to attend the Centenary Mass at the MTS Centre on May 3rd, and see the icon.
