Dave: "No, I'm full."
Little guy: "That's just not part of my vocabulary."
I believe it! And that, my friends, is why we have a Costco membership.
And I finished these paintings!!! What a delightful challenge they were!
Here they are individually and below are the last few stages before completion.

|I painted over their faces because I didn't want any of the ink|
to show. I could still just barely see it to use it as a bit of a guide.
I also decided that I needed to redo the buttons on his shirt

|I did a lot of work on their faces and some on their hair.|
|I continued working on their faces and began adding some|
highlights here and there. His buttons are back, too. I added
nails to the bench boards as well.
