Ok so look what this person did on a wall: paint-by-number mural.
This summer, I hope, we’re going to redo our deck area. And I so want to do a mural like that. I love vintage paint-by-number landscapes, and I’d like a giant one on some birch plywood. Original, unfinished kits are a bit hard to come by, and when one does come upon one, they’re pricey. I only saw one I kinda liked, but, and this is a dumb hangup, the deer in it are mule deer. There are no mule deer here, only whitetail. In theory, I could sort of modify the ears, but in reality I know I’d make the deer look like…not deer. Like freakish cats.
And then I was all like Hey why cannot I just make my own paint-by-number?
So I drove up the road, took a few pics of this adorabs church….
Then have it printed as a transparency.
Then get plywood.
Then locate a projector.
Then trace it onto plywood.
Then paint it.
Ok, so this is going to be a very long process.
But the “then paint it” part will be so fun!!!! If only I can get to that point.
