Progress and glass

I had a blast at the glass foundry today. I got quite a bit done on the painting, and I got the grand tour. The son of the manager took me all around even showed me the reject room. I told him I knew where to come to find a vase when I needed one. I admired a little glass figure of a bear, and he said to take it home. Didn't have to tell me twice. He showed me the giant disk grinder and smoothed the bottom for me before I put the little guy in my purse. What a fun time I had. I only painted for about an hour and a half. As big as the panels are that is about all I can manage. My shoulder starts screaming after a short while. But I got the ocean blocked in on two of the panels and feel good about the progress.
