Wow! It's the last day. It's all finished. Today I found the kangaroos had obviously hopped to another paddock. Ha ha! As much as I love kangas, I really didn't like "them", so they had to go. I re-did the background where they were, sponged through a stencil, some red & gold paint in the background of the top half, touched up some of the trunks, painted in wild red poppies & clumps of sour sobs. Put some birds in the trees, added brick pattern to the chimneys, & touched up paint here & there in the foreground. I eventually had to make myself stop. So I then splattered the whole canvas with black paint & then white paint. Done. I had to use a flash to take the photo as it was late, & the roof has a shine to it that isn't really there.
