Dr. Seuss Nursery Mural

Creating this Dr. Seuss mural was lots of fun. Mom-to-be and big brother each contributed to various processes of the mural to make it extra special for baby. I traced the design on to the wall after perusing several illustrations from various Dr. Seuss books. We especially like this tree as depicted in 'Go Dog Go'. The design was painted with acrylic paint. Black outlines and details were added last.

TEA and TEA again....

I've posted a few times about tea, and especially TEA CUPS and SAUCERS, for which I have an insatiable desire to photograph and otherwise admire. I really can't explain it....I never, ever tire of looking at (and collecting) these lovely works of art that embody a plethora of cheery emotions for me. Maybe it's because I recall admiring the small collection of 10 or so sets that my mother had neatly arranged in a built-in china cabinet in the dining room. Quintessential vintage 50's....only it wasn't vintage at the time! In any case, I MUST take photos of my teacups every summer when I have good light and ample time to expend on such leisurely affairs.
 I focus on creating interesting color combinations as well as focusing on the use of line and form to construct a balanced composition.

Art truly is EVERYWHERE and even a teacup and saucer collection can provide endless opportunities for artistic exploration.
