Zippy Zebra, work in progress.
Rough start to this, but it's coming along. I haven't spent a whole lot of time on it.
Zippy is a baby zebra who was brought into a vet clinic, because she was ill. A friend of mine works at the clinic. When Zippy was doing better, she took photos of Zippy for me to use to create some paintings.
We've been working on the studio some more. We decided we'd never feel it's clean until we've scrubbed each room with soap and water, so we unhooked it from the electricity and took the garden hose inside. We scrubbed with soapy water, from the ceiling on down, then rinsed it with the garden hose until the water ran clean.
Trouble is, we have so much of my stuff in there, we have to do one room at a time. This is turning into quite a project. Once the framing room is dry from all our washing, we'll lay a new floor down, put linoleum down, and build shelves for the frames. It's going to be so handy to have a room specifically for framing. All the frames and supplies in one place! Donna Ridgway
