Wine About It....

That's EXACTLY what I'm going to do "Wine About It"...There just isn't enough hours in the day especially in the summer....I keep telling myself I'm going to set a schedule and stick to it...YEP!!! I hearrrrr you laughing...and don't worry I'm laughing with you...

I'm still trying to get my house situated (moving sucks stinks) and I feel like I've been unpacking and getting settled forever...I really do just need to step back and concentrate on one room at a time...(haha now that was funny)

I have been working on a few projects (ok ok more than a few)...Oh yeah!! I need to mention my husband is finally HOME after being away for 2 months (told you I've been busy ;-)) hehe!!!

Where was I??? Oh, yeah...my few projects...Which is still my kitchen...I just don't think it will EVER be right...first the top of my cabinets and now this HUGE wall (cathedral ceilings make me CRAZYYYY)...

Hmmm I'm thinking a painting...so let's get started...

I think this should be big enough (32 x 36) now for a few supplies...

I'm going to just wing it and I don't usually do that without having a plan (yikes)...After mixing some bright green, purple and black the background is done...so far so good...

You can't see the spots of bright green unless you are up close but I didn't want it to stand out...so let's get back to work...I'm just doing subway art and putting a bunch of words that have to do with "wine"...I will just need some white paint and some chalk to plan out my words...

The chalk is great to use on canvas because it wipes right off and you can paint over it...I use it as a guide...if I am starting off with a light background I use a graphite stick...than once I'm done with all my lettering I take a sandpaper block and lightly go over my painting to distress it...


Well finally after 2 weeks of sweat and I mean SWEAT (95 + degree weather) because I had to paint in my garage due to the lighting in my house sucking the big one!!! and not to mention some tears!!! I'm done...


And here is where the tears come in...my "E" was a "LITTLE TIPSY"....You would think I was drinking when I was painting (still crying)...


I will have to mix some of the black and purple and fix it...booo!!! (Yes!! I am allowed to wine whine about it) Oh well....I can't really complain (that's a lie) since I already had all the supplies to do the painting so the cost was zilch...


Now to put it up on the wall...

Now doesn't the wall look so much better??? I think the 32 x 36 canvas was the perfect size for this space...

Sometimes when you are a perfectionist the littlest of things will drive you absolutely "CRAZY" and I can tell you I will go "NUTSO" and "Wine about it"  until I go back out in the 500 degree (exaggerating again) garage and fix this painting.... So for now....

TELL ME ABOUT SOMETHING YOU WINE ABOUT???

  4. That is really really great! I love subway art, and usually have one somewhere in the house but have never done my own. Looks like a lot of work, and you should definitely be proud of it!
    Just tell everyone you were sampling while you worked...
