I had the last bunch of coasters cut this week after having some problems with the wood splitting in the previous batch. I am sanding them now and will seal and paint them over the next two weeks. I have just 6 more sets to do.
5x7 works on paper:
The paper has been cut to size and 75% of the xerox transfers are done. The next step has been to seal them with clear gesso which I hope to be finished with this weekend. Once they are all processed, (about 50 of them!) I will start with the color flourishes and send them out as I finish them.
The 8x10's and eye portraits:
I am estimating that the coasters will need 2 weeks and that the 50, 5x7 paintings will take a little over a month to paint. Then I will be on to the 8x10's and the eye portraits. I will update you as I get closer to working on them. My goal is to complete this project during the spring.
Thanks again for your wonderful support and patience! I look forward to completing the rewards and sending you a beautiful token of my appreciation.
