My Secret Journal: Eleven, Shellacking

Note:  I am writing a story/journal that I don’t want to show before it is published in full.  These are some of the illustrated pages in the sketchbook for the story.

WEB BLANK PAGES 079
Shellacking an oak table in the first finish room; a selfie.

Moving faster on the drawings and painting, more mistakes are made. 
That is a pretty funky ellipse for the table top!
On the other hand, I like the wonky sketchy feeling.

WEB BLANK PAGES 084This piece was created in conjunction with
30 paintings in 30 days, keeping me moving on my book!
