trucks,diggers,tractors...

HEY...it's Friday!I know...I said I would be back every day this week...but I have been enjoying walking...and have had my head FULL of construction...my wonderful Mr.R is doing a fabulous job on my studio...and I have been pricing out cabinets...they're not cheap you know!!! BUT I hope Art Camp will be able to pay for them...if not all...but the majority.
Talking about ART CAMP...I am almost full...just a couple of weeks which have openings.
I'm SO excited...it's like a turning point for me in my Career, AND I get a studio out of it!

I met with a lovely lady on Tuesday and she really would like a CONSTRUCTION Zone Mural for her eldest son...pretty cool...and I am totally out of my comfort zone when it comes to diggers,tractors and earth movers...so it's a great challenge.
Doesn't everyone LOVE a challenge!!!

I am hoping to paint it at the beginning of June.
I'll show you the finished wall proposal over the weekend.

Canada has a LOVELY long weekend starting tomorrow...dry wall and mud...tape and sanding will be what's happening in the basement this weekend.

What are you up to? (nosey aren't I :-)

Hugs to you all and thanks for passing by, and leaving such energized comments about our Lego Flags...they were fun to do, and made the girls really think about building things differently.

Until I post again.

My grandson would love the mural you're doing. I recently made him pillowcases with construction vehicles on it. And, he's very much into Bob the Builder and puts on the hard hat I gave him in his "dress-up" bin.
Can't wait to see the finished project! XOXO

Char, your talent is amazing!! I've now seen you draw and paint families, murals, and all kinds of other things. Now trucks!! You Are GOOD!!! One of these days I'm going to impose upon you to do a drawing for me! I guess I better get that on your schedule soon, huh?! LOL

I think the sketches of the trucks are fantastic! I wish you were in Cali, I would love a Dr. Seuss mural in Bay's room ;)
Nothing much here today. Just cleaning house, laundry and just got back from the grocery store. Then its back to work tonight, still not 100 % better from this cold thou. I hate how a simple cold can turn your life upside and make the simplest of things a real challenge to accomplish.

Big Hugs,
Kimberly
ps. Can't wait to see your mural ;)

SO exciting about your studio and art camp. I wished we lived closer because I would definitely enroll the boys. They would love it. Trucks and such may be out of your element but the sketches look great. Enjoy your construction-filled weekend.

I wish we lived by you. Your art camp sounds amazing! Congrats on the studio and I can't wait to see the finished wall art. I'm sure it will be perfect. That boy will never want to leave his room. :0)
