My husband has been gone for several days now and I've been quite busy. I'm still choked about having to cancel a week of vacation plans, but we managed to move our holiday to the following week and have worked out an alternate plan. I'm just really looking forward to a break. I desperately need one.

I'm almost finished the book. I'm half way through my second last painting. I have one more to do after that, something for the title page, but I haven't figured out exactly what I'm doing yet. I don't want to just duplicate the cover. I'm thinking something simple...

I took some photos of the cover at different stages of completion. Here's some of my process:

I have a few more process pics from some other paintings for this book project but I'll have to post those later as that's all the time I have for now.
