My tree spirit is just about done! Yesterday we primed her face and today I painted and stained her! Her hair is stained with a buttery pecan and the rest I painted and tried to do some highlighting too.....and by the end of today I plan to coat it with a special outdoor polyurethane stuff we got! Her eyes are drilled in and they are those nice round plastic eyes for dolls! Pretty cool! Anyways, you can see her here and page down to see her near completion. :0) I am loving her and I can see her right through the window of our family room! If you click on a picture to see her closer, you will see I scribed my name in the lower left! Hehehe! Gotta sign your artwork ya know?

Patti, You and Earl did an amazing job. What a great idea to leave this trunk to start it all off. She is fantastic! I just love her. Does she have a name? You would certainly never know she was your first project of this type. You look like a pro!
Hugs Pattio
