freedom & fresh air

Okay so I totally forgot to tell you how stir crazy I was last Saturday.
I think because I have been stuck inside a lot, on my computer, doing not too many creative things.....
that when I woke up I was so excited.
I didn't know what I was excited about, but I totally wanted to paint.
So I dug up all my old painting supplies from college. Luckily I reorganized before the move and was able to find it all really quickly.
I went to the store and bought a large canvas....30x40!
There is this wall in my office/scraproom that is just dying for some bright colors. I've been saying since I moved in that I"m going to paint something for that wall.
Well, last week Saturday I set up shop and painting nearly the entire morning.
This is what I've got so far.
The background is done!
I love its vibrancy and hue.
I'm hoping it will inspire me in my office.
Hopefully sometime this weekend...maybe Sunday???? I will finish it.
I want to paint a word in black diagonally from the lower left corner to the upper right. I can't decide between "create" or "imagine."
I haven't truly taken the time to paint since college. I loved it. So relaxing to be outside, in the sun with some good music.
Let me know what you think.

And here's the wall that it will be hung up on. It's just resting on top of the drawers for now, but later when its finsihed I"ll hang it.
