Do you ever walk around your house and think to yourself, “what can I make with what I already have?” That is what I did today. So, I was shuffling through our outdoor storage room.
I came across a random piece of board that was previously painted. This is an example of a normal thing that you will find at my home. Random, and sometimes abandoned projects.
With spring and warm weather on my mind I got to painting. Sometimes I plan out paintings, but today I just let it unfold.
First I painted a bright yellow background all over the board. Then I started painting flowers. I continued to paint flowers with bright colors. I liked the retro vibe that was beginning to take shape. By now, I figured out what I was going to do with this piece. I love beautiful and pretty paintings, but snarky and sarcastic pieces really make me smile.
I traced the letters “W, A, L, and L” down the board. This little painting was going named “wallflower”.
I think the final painting came out great. I love the contrast of the loud colors of the flowers with the idea of being a “wallflower”.
Just a thought – the term wallflower is usually used to describe a loner or shy individual. However, in my opinion these types of people are usually the most interesting. What are your thoughts? Any wallflowers out there want to chime in?
