And came up with this.
48" high by 46" wide acrylic on canvas. The stars nearly drove me crazy, as each of the larger one has anywhere from 20 to 80+ brushstrokes with a tiny brush. (Hint: very few had only 20.) And there are over four dozen of those buggers. I tend to prefer large sweeping strokes with a large brush...
Took My Asteroid for a Drive...
And came up with this.
Poppies are you! So are colors! That is stunningly beautiful, Lexi.
Oh very nice. Like a moon garden painting. Only dreamier.
Persistence and attention to detail pays off. Very nice.
Totally outstanding Mulch! I assume the poppy is velcroed to the asteroid?
Awesome painting mulch. I too can picture it on a t-shirt.
Thanks everyone, glad you like it. I do sometimes put my paintings on t shirts for the gallery so that can be done. This painting is named Awakened.
But didn't you know my asteroid looks like a poppy? I thought it was so obvious. ;-)
The weather sure took a sharp left turn here. It snowed hard all day yesterday and then a strong west wind all evening into the night, which is a highly unusual wind direction for winter. So we got big snowdrifts in places they do not regularly occur. For the VERY FIRST TIME since we have lived here (somewhere around 14 years I think) we actually had to shovel the drive to get out, hip high snowdrift between the pickup and the street. Weird.
Oh wow. That sounds like a serious snow dump and a really good reason to stay home and drink chocolate;)
Strange weather for all of us. I talked to a friend who works at a local garden center today and he also thought plants were blooming about a month earlier than usual. And now freezing. Fortunately, the poppy asteroid is safe!
The poppy design is good for an asteroid. Nobody will recognize it. Nobody will know its us.
Considering the snow level here, taking a spin in the poppy asteroid is most appealing. Anyone want to come along? And where should we go?
I'm going along! Some where warm is where we should go. With roses and exotic bazaars, small shops full of dusty bottles of scent and magical what-nots. Walled gardens with bright blue tiled fountains!
Oh, heck, Roybird, you are speaking my language there. Isphahan. Or some such place. In the walled gardens, birds sing. The scent of the flowers causes you to doze, until someone brings you sparkling lime water lightly laced with an exotic honey......
I don't think they have those amenities on Pluto, but one never knows.
If we go to Pluto I'd like to take a look at Neptune on the way. It is a most gorgeous shade of blue. Neither is warm, but perhaps the Poppy Asteroid is heated.
If not we can go to Crete.
Like what is the matter with Uranus? It seems to me a planet that rotates around the sun lying on its side unlike the other planets is a perfect fit for us Rocky Mountain Forum folks.
I don't think that sounds warm. Exotic, fun maybe... but not warm. And talk about challenges with gardening...
I guess if you can figure out altitude, you can figure out extra-terrestrial.
Well, if you can figure out "desert"... you must be able to figure out anything...
"I want to be
under the sea
in an octopus's garden
in the shade...................."
You guys are a hoot! I have admired Siouxsie for quite a while dparsons. I have been having a great time listening to old tunes and cooking dinner. Life is good. Mulch... with all that sideways rotating I can't even go there. lol But I'm sure I would fit in as would kTalia... she just doesn't know it yet! Oh and Kyla I think you would have a blast there.
Well, surely, the company is excellent........ but it is getting late and it's a long way home to Andromeda.
I realized it was a poppy! I just didn't mention it. Pluto and Uranus are cold. I want to go somewhere warm.
I like the sparkeling lime water. It comes from a burbeling artisan spring just that way, lime and honey and all. Of course we'll have to visit the spring while we're there. Tucked in a little hollow, wreathed in mist with mosses and ferns making soft resting places all around. Maybe it's on our friendly sideways planet.
Duchess, I could certainly go there, Uranus or elsewhere!
Paj, my comment was to Dahlianut who thought the poppy was velcroed to the asteroid instead of it being the asteroid. I think we had a miscue there somewhere...
