Moth Painting - The Arrangement Advertisement Inspiration

The finished product in the $5 estate sale find frame

The inspiration ad

The drawing

Adding paint

Adding details

So my wife sees an ad for The Arrangement in a magazine and rips it out and says, "hey, can you paint this moth for me?"  Eh, maybe. Then she scores a frame with an ugly landscape painting on it for $5.  It is a great frame and 4' x 2'.  Then I get the question again....."Hey, now that I found a frame, can you paint it?" Thanksgiving break rolls around and I get the pressure put on so I cave in and paint the moth.  It actually turned out pretty good. Now we just have to find a place to hang it up.  Our house is filled with original art from friends and local artisans.

T. Scott Stromberg's "Sangre de Christo" now hangs in my house!

A few weeks ago Frisco had the ArtSeen tour around town.  It is basically a couple of days where artists open up their studios and show off works in progress and an inside look at their work spaces.  Some of the highlights were Misty Oliver-Foster's studio.  She is a good friend and one of my favorite local artists.   She has a really cool converted garage studio.  I was also able to pick up a new piece of artwork for our home from another friend, T. Scott Stromberg.  It is titled "Sangre de Christo"  It has a cool New Mexico vibe! We love it!
