The Miquwahkesis Project: Day Three/Four
Foxy Loxy is a test in patience! However, as slow as the process continues to be, I am pleased with how he is coming along and am choosing to trust the process. It simply can't be rushed and this is a great lesson for me in our "fast food" culture. My usual pattern is to start a project and neglect everything else until it is finished. I am not doing that this time and it has been a refreshing pattern change. Each work period I begin by taping off the next layer to be painted, making sure that I cover any existing paint in its path. It is time consuming but I am getting the clean lines that I want and I simply wouldn't be able to do this freehand. And after 3-4 coats I peel off the tape (which is extremely gratifying - what is it about peeling off tape or the plastic on a new screen that makes you feel like you've accomplished something deeply satisfying?! Humans are odd.) Let dry, clean brushes, start mixing paint for the next layer, and repeat!
