Today I spent a few hours at the Teahouse
painting a "closed up" doorway.
I thought that the stickers used were "less than attractive"
...so I asked if I could paint something in their place.
Below are the results.......
These are the stickers that didn't work....
I penciled the sketch of branches with birds
and mixed up a neutral color to paint with.
I also did an outline of a frame, which I was not fond of later.
You can see why I did NOT like the frame (!)
I really should have left it simple and "open"..
It is so heavy and out of character with the overall
light and airy feeling of the branches.
...so, I covered it up and am so pleased with the result!
It is unfinished, but I felt the need to leave it "as is"
for a while.
I get a much better perspective when I can "walk away" from
a project for a day, or two.
When I come back to it, I can appreciate it much more
and I usually give myself a bit more credit for a
"Job Well Done"
