WIP, the Fair and 22nd day of 30

This is one of the little paintings I had in the video, and is just in progress, Looking at it in the monitor I see some details I have to work on, like the eye, which is not visible when you look at it in person, but somehow, looking at an image on the monitor, or printed, even just turning it upside down, it helps to see proportions differently. If nothing else, holding it in front of a mirror helps a lot too. I am planning to do some fun stuff when all the colors are painted, but I will show it later, not telling what it is :o)

We went to the county fair today. Just my younger kid and I, since the guys were still under the weather, and thank goodness the weather was nice (for those in the north my weather was probably horridly hot, but for us in the south, it was better than out typical day in the 100s lol), because I really didn't want to go so early, but her friends were going at that time so.,. got my umbrella for a shade, and went to the 90+ degrees heat, armed with a bottle of water.
We had fun, and I of course went to all the crafts booths and the Art exhibit where they have at least coolers, because I was not going to survive a 6 hours walk in that weather ;oP
I wish I had taken my camera! I had the cell but the pictures are tiny.
We went to see all the pigs, sheep, cows (they had a baby calf 1 day old!) and the chickens. That reminded me of my "long distance" pet, a black chicken. I think I have talked about her before. It's a funny story:
Now I better post this before I run out of Saturday!
