the making of a city

So I’ve started on the artwork for my nephew’s room, so this will be the first of several posts as I make progress.  It’s not a gift (my sister’s paying me big, big bucks for it – right sis?!) so no surprises to ruin here.  I scored some canvases weeks ago at half price, and added them to some I already had.  I don’t have a plan for how this will look in the end, except for that plan in my mind… so it may or may not have this configuration, but this is what I’m starting with.

I’m also starting with the best sources for inspiration – some of my favorite children’s books.  And also a lot of materials that I have on hand.

A building a day?  That’s my goal for now.  Building one – midrise building, commercial on first floor and apartments above.  E’s favorite part – the ivy growing up the side.  Mine?  The awnings.

And because I couldn’t stop with one building… some little clothes for a possible clothesline between buildings?  Maybe, we’ll see.  And definitely a little construction equipment – now that was fun to cut out!  What do you think, sis?
