|LOT'S OF BLANK SPACE....EEEK!|
I had posted previously that I was commissioned by a friend of mine at work to do a piece for her son and soon to be daughter-in-law for their upcoming wedding. I a HUGE Tree of Life fan for so many reasons and she has seen a couple of my pieces involving the tree of life and wanted me to do something along those lines on a canvas that could be used as a "guest book" if you will. Except, of course, it will be a canvas that will be displayed as the guests come in and they will sign it and then the happy couple will have something to hang on their wall! Pretty cool huh? She had actually seen something like that somewhere and wanted to do it for her son.
We searched many things online so give her an and myself an idea of what to do and we came across several things that we will use as models. Sooooooo......back to the blank space! LOLOL Pretty scary for me as I have NEVER done a canvas this big before! This canvas is like a 24x36. Probably not big to some, but for me, 8 1/2 x 11 is the largest thing I have ever done! GULP! So as I sit an look at this canvas it seems rather overwhelming! LOLOL BUT, I am up for the task!!! I never turn down an opportunity to bless and minister to another!
My hopes are to incorporate either scripture or a poem onto the actual tree and then, of course, their names and day of wedding, etc....We shall see how that goes!! Wish me luck! I have gesso'd the canvas thus far and aim to really start cracking at it tonight!
So, that is what's on my desk today! Thanks for stopping by friends and many blessings to you today! :)
