Thanks for joining me again for Day Two of my Dress Those Walls Series. If you missed yesterday’s post, be sure to take a look.
On to today’s project:
The other day, my oldest daughter asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up when I was a little girl.
“An artist,” I told her, a nostalgic smile for the young, naive me I had been.
“So, why didn’t you become one?” she asked, her eyebrows raised in confusion.
Hadn’t I told her that she could be anything she wanted to be when she grew up? But how had I not fulfilled my own childhood desire?
That leads me to today’s project. I finally picked up the paintbrush and dipped it in paint and went to town. And this is what I got.
Don’t give up on your dreams. Growing up has a way of making you shove aside the things that seem a little far fetched. I am grateful for the reminder from my daughter.
Anyway, about the painting. I wanted something in the same color scheme as the Moroccan Inspired painting, but I knew it needed to be totally organic as to not fight with the strong pattern of the other painting.
I just painted and painted and painted until I was happy with the outcome. I was inspired by a painting (this one) and used that as a jumping off point of how I wanted it to look.
I really am enjoying the paintings and though I probably wont add anymore to this wall, I’m already thinking about my next painting.
What was your childhood dream? Have you followed it? What walls are you dressing up in your home?
