I shared the artwork I recently completed the other day, but now it is installed on my newly refinished Entry Hall Wall. I painted the wall orange, after taking down all the boards. When they were once again installed, I did a wash of the wall color in the rest of the house, diluted down with water. The effect worked well, so now the wall is soft, you can see peeks of orange coming through and the new painting likes its new home.
The nice thing about painting is that you can paint at any age. You can change your style, and reinvent what you like. As a senior, you still have lots and lots of creative energy. I now smile when I walk in the front door, as I like the simplicity of the painting with complexity of the brushstrokes.
