I have wanted to try making collaborative art for a while and I think I’ve got the perfect partner right here. Grandson and I made this city for his mom for her birthday and it was, as always, an enjoyable experience although he was most enthusiastic about painting and using his scissors.
We painted a readymade canvas with diluted acrylic paint which left all these little sparkling white dots everywhere.
The flowers and stars were rolled on with a foam roller thingie and a huge shining moon painted in the sky.
The buildings are made from paint chips with sticker windows on every floor. The markers I bought for this purpose were not suitable for drawing on paint chips after all, so we abandoned the idea of adding more details after a few attempts. Just as good I’d say; I love it like this.
This is my favorite building; wouldn’t you love to have a studio here; think of all the light shining through these windows.
In case I ever leave Stavanger, I wouldn’t mind living right here.
