Sketch for a Painting

This is the sketch for the red boat painting. I’d intended the stars to be the Pleiades, more or less. I thought I might be able to use a stamp to create them, but that didn’t work, so I painted them freehand.

I had been planning on going to the animal shelter yesterday after work. So of course, on my way to work yesterday morning, the brake warning light on my car came on. Instead of looking at dogs, I dropped my car off at the auto shop. They called this morning to say that there’s a broken rear brake line, leaking rear differential, and a broken brake caliper slide, all of which will cost about $500 to fix.

I’d like to stop hemorrhaging money soon, pleaseandthanks.
