An image like this makes me want to slow down, see if there's a porch on the front side of this cabin, and listen to some stories about way back when.
Sometimes I have to wait for the painting muse to give me an idea or some inspiration.

Cheri. It hangs in her Inspire Studio in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
I thought, "It would be fun to paint clothes on a line."
Then I knew, "It's time to paint clothes on a line now."

A few weeks ago I shared the building of our new shed. (You can click Do You See a Mural in My Future? for a reminder of that.)
That mural is happening! Who knows when it will be finished, but it's coming along. How about a peek into the process!
Fun fact #1
I stood right under that window, faced our forest, and took a picture. That's the reference I'm using for the mural.. the mirror image of what's behind me as I paint. (I know, the path turned into a river at some point, but you know... artistic license...)
I had a three little helpers this weekend who painted some pretty special hand-print flowers and feet-print butterflies.
Fun fact #3
The hens are my constant companions as I paint.
