Just finished 2 customer size paintings for an Italian restaurant in Mt. Dora.
This project idea started from murals, but we decided to do it on canvas instead of wall. I had to build special frames 8 feet/4 feet (2,5m/1,2 m) each.
This size also created a challenge for the work space. My studio is too small for that huge canvas. It was too small even for one of them. I could barely fit between these two canvases. I had to paint both at the same time to make it look alike.
I had to move paintings on the patio deck.
It is Florida. Temperature outside was over 90° (33°C). I painted until late at night.
Last day of work on this project we got rain cats and dogs. Luckily I almost finished by that time. I had to do the last 3 hours of work in the studio. To cheer my spirit I imagined myself as a tourist in Italy. It was fun.
