Update #15

Oh, Glorious Day


Hello Kickstartkateers!

I am proud to say that the painting is finished and I am adjusting the image for print proofing. It has been a long, intense road and I am so grateful for how patient you all have been. I have learned a lot in this process - not least is that I need to budget more time for the next project. :)

I can not emphasize enough how supported I have felt by all of you in the past three months. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The image you are seeing is the result of a week of photo trials. This final version is composed of 87 stitched together images. It is over 20,000 pixels across and was a real puzzle (and headache!) to figure out. 

Bottom line, I'm pumped. I'm giving it another two or three days of image corrections and formatting and then sending for the proof. That's a two day turn around before a five day print order. Should the first proof fly, I estimate I'll ship the 24" by 36" prints on the 20th of this month. The 30" by 60"s will go out in the middle of March.

Thank you again. This has been a real dream come true and it feels like this whole adventure really has and will continue to *Kickstart my career.
