Costa Rican Cloudscape

This is a recent painting I did from a photo my husband snapped from a bus in Costa Rica. My original vision for the painting was a bit different, but sometimes they tend to take on a life of their own don't they? I honestly think it could be stronger compositionally, but I decided to leave it as it is and maybe my next cloudscape will be more of a study in composition!

A Mural!

Oh my! I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted anything! It has been a busy spring with painting, landscaping season starting back up and getting our house ready to put on the market! Here are some photos of the mural that I worked on in March. I painted it for Sevenings Landscaping in Legacy West. (They work with my husband's landscape design firm Olive Branch). It was a lot of fun to do a mural for them and I wish them much success in their beautiful retail spot!

I really enjoyed working on this mural. It was fun to be doing something new and different from the norm. It also had me thinking of how to possibly do more mural work. It's just nice to get out of the house and do something else for a little while! So... if you know of anyone in the Omaha area needing a mural or decorative painting of any kind let me know! I think I'll be getting together a little portfolio of mural work/decorative painting soon!
