Gail, you never fail to deliver wonderful art work! You have a natural gift for painting and I love it when you post your work.
Look at you and Karen knocking this project out in no time! Nolan has developed you both into fine artists  :clap:
Well done  :clap: :clap:

Karen and Gail, I must have fell asleep as Nolan was painting the first wall so I was interested to see how this turned out and your painting look great.  Looking forward to the replay to have a go myself :)  (sorry Nolan ... loOOOng, tiring day in work  ;D )

I like the contrasts you have got into your painting Gail - it adds more drama.

Gail, you painted along too?  What can I say that hasn't been said before? 

You've done a fantastic job!   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Can you believe?  I see Nolan has the replay available already!  He's a real firecracker!   :yippee:

Looks great Gail, I like how you and Karen have kept the painting a little loose, it adds to the mood in the painting  :clap:

When it comes to painting a 16 x 20 canvas in oils during a paint along, there is no other option than to be a little loose.  Possibly a glass of wine might help too, but I haven't tried that yet...lunch is a little early for me.  Thanks to all for the kind comments.  the painting is a little different but I kind of like it...plan to put it up in the lobby hallway during our rainy season starting later in the fall.  it may put a smile on some otherwise dreary days.

I looked up why they call the game tic tac toe this, Below is the explaination I found. Now we can all rest tonight knowing that the answer has been found.  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

The game itself is thought to date to the Roman Empire. The 3 by 3 grid of a game called Terni Lapilli has been found scratched into surfaces. But because no markings have ever been discovered within the grid, evidence suggests the game might have been played with pieces placed on top.
 
The name tic tac toe comes from a game by the same name, no longer played, in which players with their eyes closed tossed a pencil down onto a slate marked with numbers, and earned the score the number indicated--something like blind darts. The game dates to the mid- to late 1800s. "Ticktack," according to the Random House Dictionary of English language, is a repetitive sound made by repetitive tapping, knocking or clicking. Thus, "tic tac toe" is an imitation of the sound the pencil makes when hitting the slate.

Enjoyed this lesson very much .... I messed up a bit on the sidewalk but it was interesting trying to mix the different grays and painting the wet road.
