And I am feeling it today.
On the plus side, I am now almost completely finished. And I've developed new mastery of the six to twelve foot collapsible pole. And a new appreciation for the uses of painter's tape. (Like taping a brush onto the end of the pole to get at the tiny little spots which my handy-dandy trim-edger refused to touch.)
I'm fairly pleased with the results. Especially the boys' doors. I went with a little decorational whimsy.
Here are close ups of the details:
Alex loves stop signs. He has ever since he was a toddler. And he also loves OC Transpo. I've had a lot of practice freehanding stop signs but this is my first shot at a bus. I think it turned out fairly well. I had some pictures from the Internet and taped them to the door while I was drawing. It may be hard to read in the picture, but the bus is the 93 BEDTIME.
Nathan has been very into stars and planets and astronomy. So I did a star and a rocket for his door. He's been playing a computer game where you can build a rocket and send little monkey-people into space. I wanted to draw a little monkey person looking out of the window but that proved to be beyond my capabilities. The rocket is the N.R.S. DREAMLAND. (Nathan Rocket Ship)
