in the box. . .
canvas. if you like, paint up to the edge; just know that 3″ on each side will be lost.
plastic sheeting. place under canvas to keep your surface clean.
acrylic paint. use straight from the jar or mix to get colors you love.
brushes. use like a pencil and paint with the tip.
palette knife. use unlike a pencil and move paint with the flat portion.
spray paint. it is water-based and safe for use indoors.
markers. press down to activate ink. markers do not work well over wet paint.
candle. light it to set the mood.
a you and me painting project. a box proving that we are better together. through brush marks and happy mistakes we will soon share the pull of intimacy, breathe life into love lost or perhaps champion yourself to find out what happens when you don’t give up.
you and i are not so different.
my work is who i am and your story is who you are. i promise to honor and protect sacred, meaningful, sensual words and messages, messy and delicate emotions with the safety of acrylic + ink, holding its space for the privacy of your memories.
gushing praise straight ahead – you can do this. your process is about to be perfection.
how it works –
you, you and a partner, you and your family paint anything you like on the canvas provided with the paint and other materials provided in the box. (and yes, i understand you are anxious about painting and sending me your work – just like you, what you create will be enough.)
mail it back to me in the envelope provided.
i will take what you painted and use it as a starting point and layer transparent and opaque layers over it to create a beautiful collaboration that only you will know what is under all of the layers – only you will know exactly what the piece means to you.
i will send you back a stretched, ready to hang 36 x 48 painting.
