Art and Astronomy

A month or so ago, I had a woman approach me who had seen a landscape I had painted for my mother-in-law's preschool classroom. She asked if I would be willing to paint a mural for her.

Sure, why not.

I haven't figured out how to splice my pictures yet to make one giant one, so go on this journey with me, if you will.

Obama side.
Center (although the color is really strange in this picture for some reason).

Limbaugh side.

Castle close up (do you like me dragon?)

Little Mermaid cameo


More fairies
Princess with unicorns

In case you couldn't tell, this is for a little girls play room.

If you were wondering about the horizontal line through the middle, she wanted it painted on paper (the big stuff on rolls) but that was too tall for the laminator so I had to put a fold down the middle so she can cut it, laminate it, and reattach it.

The whole thing is about 3' x 6' and was a blast to do. Those of you who are overly trained in art, please do not comment on my multiple light sources, I already know about those mistakes. I'm just happy at how my first painting came out.

On a completely different note, did anyone else see the meteor last night?

Steve woke me up just after midnight asking if I had seen the bright flash of light outside. Unfortunately I had gone to sleep only minutes earlier. He was so confused by what could have done it. He said it was so bright that it looked like midday outside for a second or two. I was too tired to wonder much about it right then, but this morning it was all over the news. I guess an oven sized meteor entered the atmosphere and put on quite the show.

fantastic art Dev! And as someone not even REMOTELY trained in art, it sure looks like something I would have LOVED to have in my room as a kid!

I couldn't have done that! Love it. Now, come visit me again and you can help me paint my girls' room. I have a great idea, but I'm afraid to attempt it. :)
