Last night my bo had some friends round so I started a new little project inspired by my little cuz Hayley. She pops round once a week with her little boy for soup, a sandwich and a the little man plays with Pablo. They came by yesterday and got chatting about the lack of art work I have up in my bedroom. I was saying how I just haven't found what I want in the large space opposite the bed. She suggested painting a mural straight onto the wall of something relaxing. At first I kind of freaked at painting on the wall, but after some gentle persuasion I decided to give it a go. I used the work of Scottish artist John Lowrie Morrison as inspiration. I really enjoyed starting it last night and it was liberating to paint big and bold! I will do some detailing on it this afternoon, and I'll let you see it again when I am finished.
This is Pablo as I am writing, dozing on the sofa arm. Yesterday's play with the little man seems to have well and truly taken it out of him!
