Ashleigh’s Big Painting

When we were furniture shopping for Liz’s daughter’s apartment, Ashleigh saw a painting she liked in a store. I took a picture of it and she said she wanted one like it for her kitchen. She wanted pink. It was just overlapping squares and rectangles of color on a silver textured background. I had a big canvas and paint so after about 9 months on not being creative I decided that Friday was the day to paint again. I textured the canvas with Gesso and then spray painted it with silver. Then I added the first layer of white squares and rectangles and filled up the canvas. The next phase was to add light pink and get darker. She has some sea foam green and turquoise, so I added a little of those colors. The plan was to get darker toward the bottom. it turned out really pretty. I texted her some pictures and she like it. Yea! Yesterday her family and I went up to give it to her and pick up a few more things she needed. Fun day.
