the last 4 days have been spent cutting, gluing, staining, arranging, and painting the first step of my earth paisleys piece.

I ordered a few pens and markers based on some friends' recommendations. So I'm waiting on those to get started on the next step. I also have to head to Home Depot and get a few paint colors mixed. I decided to use interior house paint since wood tends to be so porous and I wanted a consistent opacity and saturation through the entire piece.

I also thought I'd give you guys a peak at why I'm so obsessed with murals AND Alice. Here is a mural my mom started on our kitchen wall at least ten years ago. She also drew the artwork for my Alice tattoo sleeve, which is in progress.
