Top of the Chest

So, I painted the pieces for the top of the chest today. I think I like how it turned out. The first picture has the flash turned off and the second has the flash on. It is probably somewhere between the two colors in real life, but you get the idea. Whatcha think?

Oh, and can I add that this is a lot more work than I thought! So, beware if you start this project!

I really like it! But what really matters is how John likes it! Has he seen it yet?

I'm impressed. I always knew you had it in you ever since you won the county wide competition for your cardboard Easter egg decoration displayed in the mall when you were way young. John's eyes are going to be so wide when he sees his box.

It looks great! It seems like you've done it so quickly, I would have started it and maybe finished by the time Jack was 18 or something. I love the colors, when will he get to see it?

John has not seen painted pieces on top of the chest. My goal is to not let him see that part. Once I really glue the pieces down and then have to put the sealant on I will have to come up with somewhere else to keep it and work on it, maybe Grandma and Grandpa's garage (that is where Frances hides and finishes her creations!).

I've been crocheting today, but I think I will try to paint all the animals on a small side today.
