Here is a work in progress I'm painting on the wall of my shop.


It measures 10 feet tall and 8 feet wide on drywall.

Although I am using acrylics; it is acrylic house paint. This was a lot harder than I had thought it was going to be. It's taken me about a month so far working a couple of hours a day.

One BIG mistake I made, that I had just discovered a week ago was that in my haste in buying my supplies I picked up GLOSS latex instead of satin or eggshell finish. Doh!

It's been a hassle; but in the long run I think I'll be happy with it. Sheesh!.....or Kryki! :)

(I think he might mean "Crikey" :D - Ed)

I absolutely love this painting...I live in Medford and am not allowed to paint on my walls...I was thinking of purchasing some drywall and painting it and then hanging it on my wall...maybe the gloss will help make it look like you are looking at it through glass, especially with the bottom. Great work...actually a month is working pretty fast...(to me anyway).

Thank you tpjagg! Yes; I do happen to be really blessed in where I live. Most of my life, I've loved the ocean. But now I've lived in Bend;Oregon for 20 years. We are at the foot of the Cascade Mountain Range. Scenes like this are abundant (although this painting I made up as I painted) Thank you for the feedback!
