Jan 2014 – Winters in Austin are not very hard. Even the coldest snaps and random and rare ice storms inflict a mere trifle of discomfort and inconvenience onto Austinites. This winter has had a couple of rough cold and wet patches which hasn’t been great, but the worst has been the weather’s affect on the Blue Genie studio. The cold concrete soaked up every ounce of cold and made the inside temperatures way lower than the outside air, which put a damper on the progress on my painting commission.
However, with the better weather, I’m back to work and it’s moving along again.
That is where the Last Supper painting commission is at as of this evening, and tomorrow I’ll be back at it, hoping to knock it out well before the middle of February. There’s a lot of rough outlines needing to be smoothed over, shadows, details and the landscape to deal with, but it’s progressing fairly well and I can’t wait to invite everyone out to see the finished product.
Here are some of the previous updates on the painting commission:
