the painting

it had been so long since i played with paints that i included it on my 24@24 list. just in the nick of time, i was able to cross one more thing off.

am in the process of pumping some fun yellow hues into our living room, and when i happened upon photos from kate spade's spring 2010 ad campaign, i got inspired.

there is nothing about this photo i didn't love. the fun yellow car on the beach, the vintage playful feel. i decided to recreate it as a painting, sans the lady (a bit much for the living room, i felt).

i love how it turned out-- the look and feel is just what i wanted, and the fact that it's one of a kind is pretty fun too! on top of that, pulling out the paints was a treat.

now, moving on to yellow window treatments...
