And I love it when people translate the fact that I can paint into other creative endeavors. Most recently, a woman in my town whose daughter is being bat mitzvahed this month contacted me about doing a project for her.
At my bat mitzvah in 1983, my "sign in board" was a sheet of oaktag with a photo of me in the middle and rainbow stickers all around, since my theme was rainbows. Hey, it was 1983. Give me a break. When my sister's bat mitzvah rolled around in 1990, her sign in board was Lucite with her name in Lucite letters and hearts.
Well, this mom has the nifty idea of using a mailbox! The concept is that she'll have postcards printed with the bat mitzvah girl's logo, which she had designed for the event, and the guests can each write a message on a postcard. Then the postcards go in the mailbox, and the whole shebang can go on the girl's dresser or shelf as a keepsake. I love it!
This is the logo:
And then I painted it all in. I promise the name is in a nice purple, not blue. With my dining room light lit, I just couldn't get the color true.
What'cha think? I kind of love it. And I'm open to more work like this, for sure. Much more.
