Gone fishing



Our grandson Levi, turns 4 Saturday we bought him his first fishing pole and tackle box but I wanted to give him more so I downloaded images of little boys fishing and this is my work in progress.

I used a 1×4 block of wood and painted with oil and acrylics to suit my color palette.  I loved the story it tells and I know this gift won’t be lost or broken or lose its charm.  Can’t go wrong, right?

Well here is my completed work. I’ve learned at least 1 thing: if you need your work to dry fast don’t use oils. We need to ship our presents to Colorado and this absolutely must be dry before packing. 😦 O well, our precious lamb will still get it but not when I had hoped.
