A Spring store window
The local grocery store (yes, we have only one!) has hired me now for about 5 years to paint a little seasonal display on their front window. I finally got this done :)
I usually do 3 a year~Spring/Summer - Fall - Winter
It would be fun to do spring bunnies or a patriotic theme in the summer but we try to keep a design that can last from Spring until fall. Last year it got so cold so fast and they didn't get the fall display off before winter arrived and we had pumpkins on this window until about 3 weeks ago :)
I started out using a black paint pen to outline the leaves on the left and it kept scraping off the paint (fun part about glass painting...NOT!) I then switched over to using a black liner brush. It took much longer than I planned and now when I look at the photo, I feel the need to go back up and make the leaves on the left match the ones of the right. We really ARE our own worst critics, aren't we? Geeeez!
See that bench in front of the window? I had to step up on that, then down, then up, then down. I was SO stiff and sore last night! I think the Brazil Butt Lift workout might have been easier :)
It's very cool and windy here today and I'm really hoping the warm, spring weather returns soon!
Have a wonderful week everyone♥
