I took this to our Monday morning paint group several months ago, and my efforts that morning were in vain. A DREADED WIPER!! Today, I was looking for something interesting to paint and came across this photo, so I decided to give it a second try. I must say I enjoyed the effort. It always bothers me when I give up on something, so I felt good about the outcome today. Did I mention that the paint is so thick in some spots that it probably won't dry in my lifetime.
