Why would I buy this painting? I’m not sure I knew at the time, but it was not for the painting. But I am always drawn to chalkboards and have been playing with gold paint a lot lately….so I brought it home from my favorite shop, you know, the one I’m always talking about?
I sprayed the frame gold, but because I was painting over the artwork anyway, I did not even bother taping. And I strangely loved the way the painting looked at this mid-point…but not enough to stop there.
While painting the inside with the chalkboard paint, I had “an incident”. The paint was really thick, so I put the top on (or should I say I THOUGHT I put the lid back on) and wound up with paint all over me and all over the floor…and the frame that I had just painted gold. Hmmm. It’s kinda 80’s, but I think I’m going with it.
I played around with some lettering-and it turned out better than my first try the other day, so I found a home for it in the foyer!
