So today I finished 3 signs! One from start to finish, the other 2 were half done, sitting here like deadbeats. Feeling good.
The one I did start to finish was a commision from a friend of Ians at UCLA. Ian and his roommates have two barnwords signs in their apt. and apparently this is a good marketing tool. :) I also put 8 number signs up at their apt. building last year. Here is the funny thing... at least to me. This was ( requested) a pot leaf theme. (shocker there.) So I have now painted my first sign with a marijuana leaf (actually multiple marijuana leaves) I had to look on pinterest for some images of course....I will post a pic for you curious minded readers. It turned out nicely, if I do say so myself. Anyway, this made me think...would I paint anything on a sign, ANY thing someone asked for? (I used to say any sign for money.) I used to think I would, but you know I wouldn't. I would not take a job that was like KKK inspired or hate speak. I wouldn't even do a Trump for president sign, not even for big bucks. I have my limits.
I am definitely feeling like the cloud has lifted from my artistic hiatius. My most requested sign is 'You are my sunshine'. So I need to do a couple of those. I need to do a BUNCH of gardening ones... for spring shows and what not.
Do you guys love Instagram like I do? There are endless opportunities for inspiration. I like that you can follow someone whose photographs you like, without feeling weird. There are so many creative-minded folks out there.
Right above my computer, here,is a photo of my oldest graduating from law school. (still gives me elation) Photos are so important. I love them so much. There is also an amazing shot of all 3 of my kiddos playing in the waves on a beach. (Maybe aged 5-9-13.) Such joy. Photographs can ignite such an abundance of feelings.
So, dear friends... take a picture of something you love and post it on FB or Insta or just look at it.
Until tomorrow...au revoir!!
