Columbia just got her dress today. In the original painting, the woman is dressed in a white gown, but the stars and stripes are much more fun. The bunting is looking pretty good too, at least in this photograph - sadly, the paint is rather streaky on the canvas.
I still haven't decided on the color of the dragon - originally, it was going to be red, but now that the background and dress have so much red in them, I'm thinking a different color is needed for the dragon. Maybe green or yellow-gold. I'm running out of time to debate it - next class, I'll have to pick a color and commit to it.
