Painting for Annie!

My Daughter has a large bare wall in her apt. So she asked me to do a painting of NYC for her.

Great! Love NYC since we lived down there for so long. So I have a number of ideas and since I need a canvas to use and create the composition on I went into the closet and grabbed a failed painting.

Got the sander out and gave it a good sand and now am putting down the first coat of gesso over the yeck image that was there. 4 more coats to go and then off to the races. Lets see if my fire breathing fists of bushes will save me again! 

I sent a goal to have this one done by Thursday. Going to be very fast and rough.
