This week I will be working on another mural for Southside Church in Peachtree City. This one is of a city street. I love it because it is full of crazy perspectives, wonky buildings, and lots of color. I was supposed to start on it yesterday, but I ran into a few hiccups in my planning for this week. No worries-- I am not much one for scheduling anyway! So, instead I had some much needed time in my studio. (slash.. my front porch)
This is my favorite part of the process. It is the messiest and the most spontaneous. Creating the first layer is so liberating because there are no boundaries. Its just plain fun and free. This first part is just about getting some color on the canvas, getting it started. Lots of rags and spray bottles and finger painting. (shh--don't tell me students)
It was definitely a fun day on Peachtree Street. The painting isn't finished, but it is getting there. I left for Peachtree City and left the daffodils to dry. City Streets are next! Updates to come.
