No wonder I am tired. But we are having the weekend off from bench painting.
This morning I painted Sant Antonio Abate who blesses animals. I also painted a pig , which unfortunately was a little too high up and looks like it is flying. On Monday I think there are more animals to paint.
That was after I had painted a sunflower and a butterfly on a planter. While keeping my feet out of the way of traffic as I sat on the edge of the pavement.
And then as there is the feste of the Black Madonna of Viggiano on Sunday and there was a bench nearby the statue then it was only sensible to go there at 3pm and decorate that bench.
So that was the second Saint I painted today. It feels quite a responsibility painting local saints. Hopefully I treated the subjects with enough respect.
In between the different saints I drew 6 portraits ready to work on.
It has been , for me , a busy day. The corriere brought me more canvas boards which I needed for a commission due on Monday and a friend delivered my new printer, olive oil and gas.
I have just closed the door and hope both cats are outside.
Am very happy now that it is Friday and wine time.
