I’d be scared to death painting up that high. You couldn’t step back to inspect your work. You couldn’t ask someone else unless you had your phone. I’m getting dizzy just thinking about it. Whew. Thanks for joining in this week. I enjoyed it so much.

  5. Different styles – love the phoenix. I know what you mean about not catching the whole picture. I can never understand how they do these paintings in difficult positions and all. Skilled!
