Painting: 30 in 30 – Day 21

Every time I saw a Mural or thought about doing one, I felt intimidated.

I am not sure if it was the thought of public display, the size of it or knowing I cannot go back and change it. In any case, I was accepted to take part in a community project call “The Good Wall“. This wall is an outdoor gallery of murals painted around The Good Will Store at la Little Habana, Miami, Florida.

Robert (my boyfriend) went with me. He was my photographer of the day and was also very patient.

It was raining hard when we got there, but we knew it was not going to beΒ for long. In the meantime, we drove the car into the alley, behind the store and looked for the space I was going to paint. The spot we found was high up, so I stepped on the roof top of the car and got ready.

I was surprised that it felt so natural as if I had done this before. It was a great experience. I had so much fun, that I told Rob that I will paint a small mural at home, probably the small wall beneath the eating counter. He approved! πŸ˜€

After I was done, I sent the picture to the director of this project and she replied: “Gorgeous”.Β Good enough for me!
