I painted today. I didn’t get far. I worked on her boots. I think it took 4 or 5 hours. I’m struggling more the closer I get to finishing. I have to fight the urge to be lazy. The weather has been warming up around here also and I think that maybe it’s contributing to some cabin fever.

I was going to paint some more this evening but I got sidetracked because I started looking online for models in the Reno area and I stumbled upon an online networking site for models. I decided to give it a try. I signed up for a paid account and plan on reaching out to some models to see if they will be interested in posing for my next painting. I can’t use the site right away, though because it could take up to a week before my account is reviewed and approved. I can look through models in the Reno area though. There are even a few around Fallon, Silver Springs, and Lovelock. Not many guys, but I think this could be a great resource to start with.
