Fall Walking

"Fall Walking"
Original Illustration in Digital

The most recent Illustration project that I did, "Fall Walking", was for Traditional Home Magazine.
On October 5th, there was a Holiday House Kick-off party. The Holiday House is the designer table top showhouse in the Upper East side. That was a gorgeous gorgeous house and event! ! I'm really happy to be involved this project! My illustration was used for Benjamin Moore's Paint-by-Number project with the new color line called "Color Story". I painted on the wall in the main room of the Holiday House.It was actually the room from the Sex and the City movie , Carrie and Big's new room that they were going to live in together! As a big fan of the Sex And The City, I was honored to paint my illustration on the wall :) I started painting from 9:30 AM and finished at 8PM. It was the largest painting I did ever and in the shortest time that I painted a mural!

Started painting at 10am!
40 colors of paint from Benjamin Moore!
