But when I look outside my window, all I see is this: dead sticks, dead grass, and a whole lot of mud.
I wanted to make some "garden inspired" artwork that was a bit more realistic.
- blank canvas or art board
- a gross backyard
The process is pretty simple but it can get complicated if you don't pay close enough attention.
When you're done smearing the mud into the canvas, be sure to add some dead grass or leaves for dimension and texture. Bring your canvas inside, carefully set it down, and wash your hands.
Hang it up and you have a beautiful, earthy masterpiece that celebrates realism. Artwork that shows what spring really looks like at the beginning of April!
I think it would even be perfect gallery style, with help of kids, or in a bathroom hanging above the toilet!
Sure your husband, kids, or friends might think you're nuts, but don't let that get to you. Trend setters are often thought to be crazy and their ideas are unappreciated until after the fact!
Yes, I do have mud hanging on my wall right now. But I haven't gone crazy. 😉
Did I get you?
