…if that is a word. Not a lot of blog posts this week because I am focused on painting at a client’s house. So today’s post is a photo of what I worked on today. This corner is only about 20% of the mural….so stayed tuned for the rest in a few days.
I’m working on a fairy forest mural for a client family right now that includes a very large butterfly chalkboard. It is going to be an awesome mural on five walls for the girls’ room so stay tuned for photos!
Our Lady of Guadalupe: I started sketching this picture out and didn’t like the direction it was going. I used some gel medium to make it glossy and it ended up smearing my initial drawing. So over a few weeks I just kept going back to it when I was on a plane or stuck in a motel room and just didn’t feel like writing. It was drawn in dots, hatch marks, lines and squiggles using color sharpie markers.
I love sewing on cardstock because of the sound the needle makes when punching through the paper! Weird, I know. Working on a bunch of cards for Mother’s Day today…. I’ve got a lot of mothers, and grandmothers, and godmothers to cover in our family (if any of my family is reading this….come back after Mother’s Day!)
She’d rather paint on the floor…and has the whole “rhythmic” painting technique figured out. See Pollock 1949.
