Well, I wrestled with the sander and the shelves...I am not very happy with them right now but I also can't mess with them anymore today. At least I sanded all ten of them...most need touch up painting. The shelves just aren't coming out the way I pictured them.
I have been tweaking this goat-ish collage for most of the evening. I have never been able to draw a reasonably convincing goat face. Then I thought about using a photo from the internet and trying to trace it and incorporate it. But the more I looked at the Google'd photos, the more I remembered I have a bunch of photos of goats that I actually took -- Sue's friend's goats, Colin (the handsome goat at Kensington Metropark), and Hershey (the goat I sponsored at SASHA Farms). Huh. My photos are not at wonderful as some of the photos I found, but I can try to alter them in my photo program and work with them. Again...this is about as good as this is going to get...tonight anyway.

|two versions of the further altered photo -- plus penciling the back of the cut out head to try and leave a mark on the canvas|
|right about here -- not quite the exact right size but maybe I can make it work|
|Hershey's horns showed up a bit -- I left out the notch he has in one of his horns|
|tweaked collage image of a goat-ish guy -- it's a start, I guess|
