Inspire Me Thursday is a weekly artistic challenge which is posted on the Thursday of every week and must be completed before the following Thursday.
This week’s challenge:Take a look at your past work and make note of what size art you create most often. Then think BIG! Challenge yourself to make your art bigger, wider, taller, longer, broader, thicker.
It’s funny that this week’s challenge is to think big. A few days before this challenge was posted we changed our office back into a formal dining room so that we could put our house up for sale. In doing so, it left a very large and blank wall with nothing for us to hang up on it. All of the paintings that I have ever done have been on a 16 X 20 inch canvas or smaller. I did have a 18 x 24 inch canvas laying a round and thought that I would paint something on that. After reading the challenge for this week, I was inspired to go even BIGGER. So off to the store I went to get a bigger and better canvas. I loved painting bigger. It allowed me to do something I had been afraid of doing before.
Below is a picture of our “new” dining room. It looks the way that it does to please prospective buyers. We really are not formal diners.
