Today is a tremendously magical day. Fresh snow covers everything and I ended up spending more time than usual at Frank’s Flats…playing with the Max Man and delighting in the dazzle of everything.
The last I posted of this bedroom furniture DIY project was titled, WHITE. I had everything primed and ready to go. At that point, I had thought to paint based on Marc Chagall’s work, but have opted to do a free flowing bit from my own heart. I wanted to pick up on the colours found in a feature painting hanging already in my bedroom…something I did a long time ago. Here is where colour comes in.
First of all, Sisters Marjorie and Ita enjoyed a Sunday dinner with my son and me. They were so gracious and brought me a beautiful spring bulb arrangement. It has sat on my feast table this week and I have watched one plant after another, burst forth in colour.
While I have been very slow to progress with my studio furniture…I wanted to give a bit of a sense of where it is going at this time. As well as what you see here, there will be other layers…text as well as sparrow paintings incorporated in collage techniques. In the meantime, I continue to sleep on my brand new double box spring and mattress, on my bedroom floor. I hope to update you again in the spring with the completed furniture. Painting can be like experiencing the seasons…moving from the blank canvas to an energized piece of colour.
