A few weeks ago, I posted about a series of house paintings I created for my friend Dana. Well thankfully, after I made those paintings, other people reached out to me. What more could I ask for, the opportunity to be able to make art for others. Seriously. Darla, is my very dear friend, with three wonderful children. Like super polite, and fun. What a good combo for a kid to be. Anyway, they live in this really cute house, and she wanted me to recreate that via watercolors. Unlike Dana’s watercolors, Darla’s house is on canvas. Both are great, and make no difference to me. But, if it’s something you might be interested, just know, that the canvas could be directly hung on the wall, while the watercolor paper will need frames. I like both looks. And actually, Darla is framing her canvas, but not everyone does that.
Yes, sometimes I use paper plates as my paint palette. I used to be fancier, and use a very thick and heavy piece of plexi glass. I should probably go back to that lifestyle. But for now, I use leftover paper plates from parties.
Oh, but no, it’s changed. In the shot below. I went on to use a lid to tupperware, with a plastic sandwich bag over it. Anyway, making progress. My favorite part is the cute front foor. It’s not red, but not quite pink. It’s a sophisticated and even preppy color, that perfectly reflects their home.
All done. “Darla’s Home”.
