In the past few posts about our bedroom redux, I have mentioned that we need a piece of artwork over the bed. But what to choose?
Well, duh. I have one of the world’s most amazing artists living under my mid-century roof: The Magnificent Maeve. And if you don’t think she is magnificent, check out her blog BluePaperLanterns. So I commissioned a painting from her. I agreed to pay $50 plus supplies. I showed her some images that I liked as inspiration, like the one below. But I also told her I wanted her to do it however she pleased. I’d like the colors to work with the room but other than that to go wild.
Well, she started it today and already I am amazed! I can’t wait to see how it turns out. Right now it’s looking like aboriginal art and it was inspired by the artist Yayoi Kusama. And yes, she’s doing it with a Q-Tip. I can’t wait to see the final product!
