(Do you see that Buzz Light Year died inside that AT-AT? He succumbed to a fatal nerf gunshot wound, apparently.)
(I am keeping it real. I left the mud in the mudroom ’cause that’s what mudrooms are for.)
I like tribal design because it’s modern. Well actually, it inspired modern design so really it’s kind of more modern than modern. It is also meditative, rhythmic, accessible, minimal, efficient, humble, modest, unpretentious, and most importantly, easy to make if, like me, you have absolutely no drawing abilities. Making a tribal design on fabric or walls or a floor is just like doodling but on a very large scale.
On this specific circular and dotted design it even became an aerobic exercise. I crouched and hopped in circles with a paint brush in my hand, over and over and over and over and over again. I should have made a video to show you how I did it but I haven’t yet let go of the very last scrap of my self respect – Oh wait -yes I did – see video below.
(The faint background music in this video is courtesy of the 1000th WWII documentary my husband is currently watching. )
(Also, this is a reenactment of actual events that took place.)
My first attempt at this design was on a cheap blackout curtain that I used to keep my then baby asleep for as long as humanely possible in the morning.
The second and more cardiovascularly challenging attempt was the mudroom floor. (If you need more of a work-out I suggest a bigger room like a living room.)
Again, I have left the mud all over the mudroom because I am not cleaning my floor just for you (unless you are my in-laws – then I’ll clean the floor and pretend like my mudroom never sees any mud).
Happy Aerobic Painting, Everyone!
