To begin, I will say that readers of this story are in for a treat… There are several aspects to this story, since I’m telling it now… in 2024, and because of this, I have to share links to other art stories, as well… so you will see how one artwork influenced another artwork which then influenced Scorpion Skies! This is what I love about being an artist - one idea leads to another idea then it evolves to create other ideas!
So… a day or so after Christmas 2023, I posted this
photo that Devon took of mommy snuggling up in the housecoat that Santa brought
to her, on Facebook…
One of my Facebook friends made a few comments about
how happy Jo’ looks and how warm the housecoat looks and then she surprised me
by asking about ‘the circle’ in the background… wondering what it is. To answer her, I came to this webpage to find
a link to the story behind it… and there was no story. So, then, I went
googling in my archives to a blog I created many years ago. 15 minutes later, I had found a few stories
about the mural and lots of photos.
Since I’ve yet to document this art creation on this
website… I’m going to share the story now…
