To have such a large blank canvas! So fun! It took me a few weeks to get an idea- then it is the matter of taking the first stroke- you cannot have any fear! There were so many things that could have gone wrong- you don't know how many times I have had to start a new canvas at home because of a spelling mistake. But praise the Lord- there have been no spelling mistakes on the wall yet! Your mind does funny tricks on you too-- when I painted the big blue "J" on the wall I panicked and thought it was backwards.
Eventually the whole alphabet will be up there- please help me think of a good picture for "M". I do not want to paint a Mouse- (although Micky Mouse would be kinda cute). Each letter has a verse that starts with that letter.
Here are the ideas for the rest of the letters:
L- lolly pop
O- octopus, (or OBE as our 7 yr old suggested- "what's that?? An instrument!- Oh! The oboe?!)
P- pig, or pie?
Z- zebra, or zipper (I don't do well painting zebras)
Any ideas you have would be great! As you can tell, I like painting any kind of food or candy- bugs are good; any thing that would make a small child happy.
