The day after Miriam posted this my daughter Erin was in a great mood. When I picked her up from soccer camp and asked her how was it she said "I had a great Day!" I was amazed I usually get.... fine. She was so happy! So this is what stuck with me and will for a long time, considering she didn't even want to go to the camp!
For such a simple looking page it actually had a lot of steps!
Taped & Gesso'd the page
(had to tape the center this is where the two signatures met,
and after all this is a grocery bag!)
My inspiration.. Romero Britto, his images are so happy!
A while ago I made a pencil drawing from a photo of Nick & Erin.
Then changed it into a Britto style drawing.
I use his artwork at school, the kids easily relate to him,
and they see his work in different places. I used this
as a guide for a new drawing.
I used a printout of words, not loving my handwriting lately,
so I use this as a guide. I spay it with workable fixative then add
it in with gel medium.
And onto painting!
Off course some patterns in areas
What made today special?
A Happy Girl!!
