My Fab Brothers Strange Request...










to do a painting for him made me laugh! He emailed me one day and said he wanted me to do one for his fabulous new apartment in California. He said he wanted a piece as a tribute to Syd Barrett...I said "who?" - he laughed and said it's the guy from Pink Floyd! Obviously while I was listening to disco in the 70's, he wasn't...I said to him that I can't paint people...he then sent me a photo of an album cover and wanted the floor that was depicted as a painting. I looked up the link and laughed....it's an old wood floor that has been painted and varnished. I have to say, it was cool! My brother has always been the cool one, even though I do like funky, modern design. I did the piece for him and am sticking it in the mail! It's a 30x30 and will hopefully look good. I pray it matches something!!! I am including the album cover photo so you can see who Syd Barrett is too (for those of you that don't know!?!) Hope he likes it in person...

Kelly, Well, you did a fine job on the "floor" painting and also the one where you repainted the rainbow. Fine job. Your brother will be pleased and I know the couple purchasing your rainbow painting were pleased. You go girl!!! (Sure enjoyed painting with you this a.m.). Loveya, MOM

Kelly I found you from a post you commented on on my own blog and I'm so glad I did! I love meeting other working Mom artists out there reconnecting with their passions. I can't wait to see more of your work!
