Recently I had a wedding commission to make a painted family tree. The groom was Indian and the bride Italian-American, so thus explains Gandhi, Ellis Island, the elephant and the pilgrams (well, that doesn't explain the pilgrams. There's a lil' of that in her, too).

So ta da ... a month's painting. I'm happy with the result and I learned from the process. I think I am done with museum board and am going to go back to gessoboard as my surface. I am DEFINATELY continuing with the acrylic gouache with a final layer of oil.
