I read a decorating article just the other day that declared "grout is out!" Who knew!? But that makes this even more fun because this painting was actually done for the purpose of floating it in a clear acrylic frame and placing it as the back-splash over a kitchen sink. (And that was before I read the article. I feel so smart!) The goal was to create a pop of color for a kitchen that has white cabinets and a subdued palette of neutrals on the counters and walls. When my daughter-in-law and I began discussing what to do with that area, the discussion eventually morphed to putting a painting up. She loved the idea and so I set to work painting one of her favorite plant types -- succulents -- for the kitchen wall. It's about to go to its new home and I hope to add a photo when it's in place.
