Linda, my neighbor from Canada has painted a lot of plant designs on her garden walls and has tempted me to do something on my palapa wall. Her's are all palms or a few broad leaf tropical plants. I need to get a foto to pass along the idea. She was able to use shadows .... but I have no plants under my palapa for shadow or outline. She and I ended up holding a palm frond up against the wall and outlining with a pencil.
So Linda did the one on the right and me on the left yesterday. I played with sky, bamboo and flowers today. Totally new for me and with more white paint I can cover over anything.. The original arch looked like I should create a Virgin de Guadalupe shrine below it but I don't know her. Really think I need another color or two beyond green and blue. With more white ... it can be painted again. Just like Graffiti
The added work in progress was Nahima (our 3 year old neighbor) wanted to sit on our toilet and insisted for 20+ minutes. She eventually headed home with her sister under protest and we assumed just another 3 year old stage. She will be just as crazy/independent tomorrow .............
Yesterday palms only
Fillers, sky, bamboo and flowers
Nahima not on the "tazo de bano"
