art by panel

Chicken Little is 7 months old today, and the rain and wind that marked his birth has returned full force.  In fact the gusts were strong enough that my exuberant dog turned tail at the sliding glass door this morning, having to be forcefully pushed outside for her morning constitutional .   I was glad my own day’s activities did not include any outdoor adventures.  As I was able to complete my mural panels yesterday!

Yay me!   I know I started them before Chicken Little came around, but spending time in the winter inside that unheated,  tin walled, dirt floored basement wasn’t really high on the priority list as the weather entered sub-zero temperatures.  But I’m done now....  three full panels of jubilant sea life gathered in bright colours and awkward brush strokes.

I gathered up my supplies.... and stashed them in the back of my car for my next painting adventure!!

“What is the next adventure?”  You ask....  well the  the paints from the mural panels are being appropriated so that I can paint a series of completely different panels... these ones being the panels that will grace the float of our local Arts Council in our community “Seafest” Parade.   The Float...  hmm so what will the float look like.... well I think it will look suspiciously like  -   -   My Car!   Yes the panels used to  be designed for a flat bed truck.. but apparently these are hard to come by these days and turns out roof racks make great places to tie plastic panels on to one’s car.   I have no idea what this will look like when it’s done but I’ll try to post some Photos!

Wish me luck.
