Wedding Guest Book Painting - Part 3 - Painting an Addendum
GUEST BOOK PAINTING ~ Well, guess what? I didn't have enough lines on the previous painting!
This meant that I had to stay up very late LAST night to paint another picture, an addition. Because I hate to put so much time into something only to have to file it in that special place that we call the trash-can, I needed to come up with an idea and fast. I didn't have the time allocated in my schedule to paint another day away, so I felt I should push through and 'Getter done!'
Yes, It was easy enough to turn it into something different, but I was not ready to give up on it. In my mind, I thought 75 lines, 75 families. However, the bride felt each person should have their own line. As we talked a little, bouncing ideas off each other, another idea began to form, I would paint an addendum.
This was what I came up with. She wanted the birds white instead of black. I felt the area painted needed to reflect in size the other companion piece, so that meant I would have to add something to tie the birds together and to the other piece.
Here is what the top looks like! This clearly connects painting two to painting ONE!
