….and missed! Went to let Ms. Vayda out yesterday…and thank you Jesus, I did not open the door. This was sunning itself on the brick step just on the other side of the glass…(at least I think that’s the specimen, as it was both black and fast, I mean really fast…oh and maybe 4 feet long…) Needless to say, I ran screaming for Nick and his handy-dandy Red Ryder…by the time he arrived it had slithered elsewhere, and just as I was insisting he hunt for said beast, the monster came out of hiding and made a run at me…I swear I’m not exaggerating…just ask Nick. Now, I fear, It has made it’s home in my yard, and what if…just tell me what if Ms. Vayda has an encounter???

the beginning…

I love mural work…especially, when I have a great client who allows some breathing room for creative freedom.  However, I’d be lying if I said mural work didn’t overwhelm me at times.  Just to get the ball rolling can be a challenge…think of all the possibilities, all the opportunities, all the uniqueness that could be played up in that space…(or wasted if I choose the wrong color, wrong subject matter, wrong placement…you get the idea)  Anyway, as I mentioned in a previous post, I’m in the very early stages of an “under the sea” mural…(stop…now think of all the animals you might see at the aquarium…and see if you could pick just a few to play up in a mural…)   so my brain has been “all over the place”  on this one…but finally got on a roll last night.  So much so, that I couldn’t sleep…
