I just love blogs. The unfortunate thing is that I'm realizing that this is a whole different artform that I have to become acclamated to. I want to delve more deeply into Louise's life and work, but I also want to tell more of the mural, and where it's going to go. I debated all night as to what to do next, and since this blog is to document what the process of this mural is, I have to start with what we have so far. So, I am giving you a cliched before shot of the wall that we plan on using. I have to admit that I am a bit embarrassed, though, to show such meager pictures, for that is one of the reasons why I adore blogs like smitten kitchen so very much. The PICTURES! Alas, I have tried to jazz up this image of this hallway in photoshop to be up to par with that of other blogs, and I can not do it.
There you go. A blank white wall. I just read on another blog, the Coletterie, that as we age, we aspire more towards simplicity. I completely agree, however this is a bit too simple. It ventures from simple into white bread with no nutritional value. We need to add a bit of spice to it, don't you think?
So, here is a layout of our future mural. Can you see the Louise Nevelson influence at all?
Each squared off portion would be a shadowbox containing many design elements within.
A detail shot. The DuBois will eventually be a hidden image.
