The Bunday Evening Thumps

"Graham Cracker and Mel" - a fresh crop of Spanish Needle pops up ;-)

Good evening, Everybun!

I sayz to my hoomin this morning, "Today we loaf, mkay?" Did he listen? Nooo, of course, not. He tried and piddled as best he could and then loafed anyway. I want a cookie for that!

The time has come to face the Spanish Needle, though. We did a few sketches of it on tracing paper and velum taped to the canvas. There's a certain finality about it. The completion is near. The act of tracing the position of the flower feels irreversible. After the flowers are painted in, even roughly, the rest will be cleaned up.

So, yes, we fret about that. The painting progressed and marked a rough year from the very first sketch in a small notebook. And "Twenty Twenty 4" already smells like a bad sequel that refused to go away.

We'll go with Mel Leipzig, who would probably say - "It's just a painting." And the hematocrit numbers will fall into place - probably sooner rather than later.

Goodnight, and good luck!
- Gus
