Luckily since I have left my "secure" marketing job I have had the opportunity to do a wide variety of creative freelance jobs. I have to be honest, when some people first ask (like doing caricatures for high school seniors) my first thought is no, but then I quickly change my mind and say yes. What do I have to lose? And when you want to make a living from being creative a pay check is sure nice! But even if the pay isn't great it's a good starting point and who knows what will come out of it.
A few hours were spent on researching for appropriate silhouette scenery and placement. The windmill was that hardest to paint. Painting such narrow lines and keeping them straight is not an easy task. Then the words... they are painted on, five coats to cover the black paint!
The finished product:
Not an easy size to photograph. Didn't help that it was real windy out. My husband was holding the ladder and me while I was taking pictures. :)
Have you taken any creative risks lately? (Other than standing on ladders to photograph your creations? Ha!) I hope you all had a wonderful fourth! I'll have to share a few photos of Kaelyn from her eventful weekend soon.
