The tide is high
I've posted pictures of this room before, but this time is for documenting before painting over it.
I can't believe I painted this over six years ago -- her little toddler room. Winnie has begun to feel that the room is too babyish (thanks a lot Courtney) and I suppose it is a little borderline -- so, we paint.
Winnie did make me promise to write the border story down -- we are going to type it up and frame it for the new room -- a nod to the old.
Some people have asked me how I'm going to bring myself to paint over my work -- two things. One, there is always a next idea dying to come out and two, I once saw this PBS special on this guy who made these awesome sculptures out of rock and driftwood that he found on the beach -- he made them at low tide and when the tide came in they were gone forever. I thought that was so cool -- he was all about creating beauty for the day he was in. In that light, six years is a really long time to hang with the same walls.
