#17 for day 22: FIFO Dad

This is going to be the cover of my niece's book. I know the photo could be better but the circumstances today did not lend itself to good photographic conditions. FIFO stands for Fly in Fly Out. There are many families in Western Australia who have dad's go off to work in isolated outposts for weeks at a time. This is Rory who is doing just that to support his family of 4, soon to be 5. The book will support suicide prevention.

Just the start. Thomas and Swabby have the important job of maintaining the marina. Fortunately for me, they are also willing models. Thanks Thomas for swinging by the boat for me!

Day 13; Getting there.

I think I am 2/3 of the way finished. I have to work my other job today, otherwise I might have been able to finish. It is good to have a break from what you are doing and go back to it. With a fresh eye, I am sure I will discover things I need to correct.

So I think I am pretty much done. I usually sit with paintings for a few days to study what is working and what is not.
