Toni’s Tuesday Very Delayed Painting Video:) Easy Iris

**************************

It’s almost 1:45 am on Wednesday, but I started this post many hours ago Tuesday evening. I wanted to make a full length painting video of an easy acrylic iris on watercolor paper. It only took me about half an hour to paint and record the first iris painting. I immediately started uploading the video onto YouTube. While I was waiting, I decided to paint three more paintings. Why, you might ask? Because I had left over paint. I hate to waste paint.

Four time the fun…

Well, about an hour later, the YouTube video upload said, “Unable to upload.” That was from my phone. So, I transferred it to my iPad and tried uploading again from there. The upload symbol kept churning and churning ever so slowly. Over two and a half hours later, the upload was complete. That’s just crazy!!!! I know my internet is slow, but I could have grown real irises from seed quicker than that.

Well, hopefully worth the wait.
