So many of my friends have paid a lot of money to have artists come into their home and paint murals on their children's walls and I just love them! I thought long and hard about how to do something just as cool with a very minimal budget. Before you go any further, I have to admit that I don't have a single artistic bone in my body! I'm creative and can improvise ~ that's my strength. I decided to give this painting thing a try! Wait til you see we were able to accomplish!!!
I'm revealing our paintings one at a time and a little at a time ~ this make take some time (I'm still painting)!! I'll reveal how we were able to do this when we're all finished showing you the fruits of our labor. This was a tremendous amount of work. Much more than I had ever anticipated.
I started out with the classic Cat & the Hat ~ I wanted to paint this picture. I found it on the Internet somewhere. Daddy drew it up on the wall and then I began to attempt the painting replication.We're well on our way here. I took more pictures of the process for some paintings but not too many for most.
Here is the end result! Pretty good right? OH YEAH! Lots more to come!
This picture sits at the corner of Nathan's crib. It's actually pretty big and once you see what's next to it ~ you'll get the full scope of it's size. That's to come...
