I've had this package of corkboard tiles around for ages, knowing I was going to do something with them, but not knowing what. Well, I was hit with inspiration the other day. Maybe it just happened, maybe it was the 100 Happy Days project that got me thinking about happy things, but it hit me!
There are two street artists in Paris that never fail to put a smile on my face. I used to go on 'hunting' trips to find new (new to me) work by them. They are just so happy and carefree. Mesnager has always been my favourite, with his free-spirited, dancing figures, but I already put his artwork on a bag which is in my sewing room. Next favourite? Nemo! He does silhouettes of a man in a suit just...relaxing, having fun, stopping to appreciate life! I have a signature Nemo red umbrella on my Mesnager bag, but Nemo deserves his own project. I needed to brighten up my sewing closet a bit and he always puts a smile on my face. So I found a picture on my computer of some of his work and started painting!
Did some random designs on the other corkboards, just for fun, and I wanted him to stand out :)
