A little tribute to the my home state of Kansas of “Home on the Range” – written by Dr. Brewster Higley (1876) was my inspiration for a recent Sunday art project. This one took a tad longer than expected thanks to my oldest wanting to help and my indecisiveness with the background color.
Progression shots as you can see how I started off with a much lighter, more aqua toned background…
Did you notice the mister super excited holding the painting in progress above? He wasn’t super stoked about me changing the background color three different times. Sorry I didn’t take a photo of me free handing the words – I was in major concentration mode. All in all it ended up to be a huge success and I was happy with the result. Don’t be made at me if you are singing “Home, home on the range…” the rest of the day.
