This newest painting will be my first diptych, although it started out as a triptych. Due to “eyeballing it” – turns out I only need two 16 X 16 canvases instead of three.
This is my first time using black gesso, covering the canvas and applying light colours back on top. I was inspired by the windows in Red Haired Mary (?) to carry on with a stained glass window theme. (5)

Almost finished – the pillow was really my nemesis on this one. I think I’ve almost conquered it. I really wanted a fluffy pillow, instead of a flat-blah pillow. I’m going to work a little bit on the trim, and some of the woodwork on the sofa, and by golly, it’s thisclose to being complete.

I’m almost finished, and will take a good quality photo once complete. But the status is – stilllllll in progress.
Two names so far are: Lady Naverly is Waiting or House of Stained Glass Windows. Once I get a few more names together, I’ll put this out to poll to select the best choice. AND, if you leave a comment on my blog, you could always submit a suggestion. (8)

Still going (2) – I hope to have finished by mid-week. I have to work on some of the body, chair, drapery, and the pillow needs to be lightened back up.

Worked on the stained glass tonight (4.5). Trying out different names too. Still in progress.

Still a lot more work to do. (8). LG came up with a name today, but then we both forgot what it was. Lady Nave-something is best what we can remember for now. By the time she’s done, she’ll have a name though.
