Wow! It's been so long since I've posted anything I almost forgot my password!
I just want to let y'all know that I haven't fallen into the pond completely. I'm posting a few of my "daily paintings" from the mural project I'm working on.
These images are inspired by The Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Like many little boys, the child that will occupy this bedroom is gung-ho for pirates and loves the movie. So this is his desire - to be surrounded by all things "pirate". I have a "Capt. Jack Sparrow" inspired image done but apparently didn't any photos of it so that one will have to wait... My creative concept for the room is that of a giant pirate's map which covers the walls being torn down as the pirates have come to reclaim it. The pirate that's coming in, under the map is actually looking for his wayward parrot, which mocks him from a safe perch on top of the closet doors. Meanwhile, the pirate monkey is ripping down the "map" as he sits atop the windows.
And that, folks, is my current "madness" in my mind as I work on this mural.
