So despite slightly chilly temps I went outside and started working on the mural in the dog run. I had a brilliant idea today and remembered a great source for free paint. Our local bottle depot has a recycled paint section and you can go in and drop of or PICK UP paint for FREE. So I went and got every colour that I was slightly interested in so that I did not have to use up all my expensive “Fine Art” paints on a 7 by 12 foot mural. Plus my little containers of paint are no where big enough to paint such a large mural…did you notice the title of this post…Mural # 1. More on that below
So here is what I got accomplished this evening
So plans for tomorrow are
- walk the dog
- Get hair cut at 10 am
- check out thrift store
- get wood for other garden gate Mom is building…take picture of other finished gate!
- Continue painting mural and post another progress picture tomorrow
- Take a picture of wall#2 that is being painted
So my neighbour took down a section of fencing and built a addition to his garage right on the property line. Normally neighbours would FREAK but we are awesome and so it as an opportunity. So the new plywood wall is 8 feet high and …wait for it 30 feet long!! eeekkkk. I have actually never painted an actual picture on something that big before but and super excited for the process.
I will make mom pose tomorrow so you can see what it looks like.
