Yes, I know that I said the last one was the final piece, but these really, really are the LAST paintings I had to do for this book! The nighttime scene is the first page of the book (title page). The daytime scene is the last page (copyright and dedication). My, such wild times must have taken place in the interim!
I finished up these paintings at about 4:30 in the afternoon yesterday, and let me tell you, I am NOT used to leisure time! I was going a little bonkers with nothing to do! What am I going to do when my next project is over?!?! If last night is any indication, I'll do a lot of puttering around the apartment & make lots of chocolate chip cookies.
