Spider alert!

I decided to do a new mural.  I’d never been happy with the moon, but had never really made the effort to fix the problems:

So seeing as I have more time on my hands, I thought there was no excuse.  I had enough Kilz to go over the moon.

I sketched out guidelines for the rays of the web using a string and two pencils, so I could more accurately get the fall of the threads.

Painting in the top of the rays where the side of the garage is in the shade.

Getting there!  Decided to put a rough outline of the spider in to figure out how big I want it to be.

That’s enough for the first day.  It’s a really rough siding board and not easy to paint detail on!  And maybe my neighbors driving by will enjoy a bit of entertainment as the spider progresses.

  1. Good project! I can “see” a snake eventually curled up in the corner waiting for the right moment to strike. (If snakes eat spiders – lol.)Thinking of this makes me realize I have too much time on my hands.Caren

    • Yes, great idea! And if you have time on your hands, paint!!!!! If you’re out of supplies, with Michael’s you can order online, arrange to go to the store and they will bring it out to you and put it right in your trunk.
