I'm calling it at four coats. Still need to touch up the sides of each canvas "chassis" and finish three more coats on the 6 x 9. But other than that it's go time. I'll work in a few days of painting outside as well in the coming weeks, as the weather has been spectacular and the long-range forecast for Spring is high and dry thanks to The Boy, at least at lower elevations. Oh, and my book on Strindberg arrived today. Excited to pore over that after finishing a skimming the Symbolist painting survey. And next up will some deeply romantic descriptive writing: Muir, and some fiction TBD.
