I can't wait to chime in about this Whimsy Grandfather Clock!
Do you want to know what I love most about this Whimsy Grandfather Clock project?
That anyone can do it!
It may look extremely complicated and advanced level, but it's not!
It's just multiple patterns, colors, and techniques placed next to one another, but they are created individually and anyone can do that!
I just recently offered a grandfather clock painting class (in fact you can still join and watch the instruction on replay), and this is my completed masterpiece!
Matt refers to it as my "marathon clock" as it seems to have taken forever, but that was LIFES' fault; not the clocks or the artist!
There is something so incredibly magical about grandfather clocks!
I, of course, love the ringing of the chimes and the ticking of the pendulum, but it's more than that for me.
It represents my childhood.
The magic of sleeping over at my grandparents' home.
In the nursery rhyme Hickory Dickory Dock, the mouse ran up the CLOCK!
Beauty and the Beast with the furniture that comes to life!
And because of this, I am drawn to clocks, and am driven to add life in color to their frames!
There are NO limits to what you can do with these large pieces!
However, mine goes WHIMSY. Every. Single. Time!
The placement of stripes and checks creates a playful vibe...
The colors of the sunset blend together to remind us to relax...
The addition of the framed blue sky reminds us that we can always create our own beautiful day...
The sprinkle of gold amongst the design keeps it just fancy enough...
And tucked deep inside our Whimsy Grandfather Clock lies a hidden whimsical black and white butterfly and whimsical floral garden, as if it's a secret.
The view of the clock from down below, looking upward at its beauty is my favorite shot. It takes me to the same vision of my grandparents' clock as a child. The clock was huge in my memory, but only because I was so small!
If this inspires you, maybe you will begin to play with the idea of painting one, in your own style and colors, for your own home.
If you feel that you would like to try but would prefer support and guidance; grab the course!
I show you how to tackle this somewhat overwhelming project, one color, one pattern, and one step at a time!
I have listed below the products I used to create this piece in hopes that it will assist you in gathering your supplies!
