So here’s a horrible way to end a friday : spend all day painting and finish at about 4PM, content and relieved that I don’t have to take work home again tonight, only to realize that I had checked the wrong date and painted the wrong thing. Well, here we go again. At least I’ll have the 18th of October off! Who’s drinking champagne with me on the 18th of October? Countdown! ๐Ÿ˜– #revealtheprocess #365postcardsforants #upsanddowns (at Buchanan Square, Woodstock)
