A bit of painting today

I alternated between putting fenders on my Jeep and painting today. It’s difficult to be satisfied with my artwork sometimes. I feel like it’s coming out okay, but as an artist one always wants to be better. I filmed all my progress again. I only worked on the face and neck.  Near the end I found myself getting frustrated and I realized I had forgot to eat lunch. If I go too long without eating I get cranky and irritable. I went to town and got a sandwich, then I took my kid to go see the movie “Hostiles”. When we got home I finished getting the fenders onto the Jeep. The blinker lights on the fenders weren’t working so I had to splice into the wiring and do some soldering. All seems well. It’s now midnight and I should probably go to bed.
