100 PAINTED CLOUDS

When was the last time you took a nice break, lying on the grass, staring at the clouds looking for fun shapes in the sky? I used to do this a lot as a kid and it would always make me feel great. Now that I paint clouds, I noticed I get that same feeling when I look at them and I would like to share that good feeling with you. These paintings are nice little reminder to take some time for ourselves, even if it's just for a second. 

Take one or two home with you or at the office. Offer one to someone you care about.   

WHERE TO PUT THESE CLOUDS

These clouds fit wherever you can use some inspiration and a mental break. Since where we sleep is normally when we get a bit of a break from everyday life, where we can dream, bedrooms are a great place to enhance with beautiful cloud paintings. Here are some examples of where some of the painting would enhance the space. It might also inspire you to give your bedroom a little update as well. 

PAINTING PROGRESS

More paintings coming soon. Check out 100clouds.tumblr.com for larger images.

SHIPPING

Example of packaged reward
Example of packaged reward

You'll be getting one (or more) original artwork, hand painted on an acid free heavy weight 245 lb (400 gsm) acrylic paper measuring 6 in. x 6 in. (15.2 x 15.2 cm). The painting will be signed in the back. You'll also be getting a personal thank you note. The artwork will be placed in a plastic sleeve and on top of a rigid board to protect it during transport. All artworks are carefully packed and shipped in a rigid photo mailer, including item tracking.

THE PROCESS

I am using a colour palette from the 2017 colour trends as a way to evoke the feelings of our current time. Each painting will feature a specific dominant colour for the background as well as a second colour for the clouds. 

Art Sponsors

Art Sponsor of the project can select a colour from the palette below to sponsor (first come first serve) and will receive a thank you card featuring that colour.

THE INSPIRATION

Over the years, clouds have become a muse and a teacher as I continue to grow in my art practice, daring to dream big and working on turning these dreams into reality. Painting and sharing clouds are an invitation and a reminder to be present and to never stop dreaming while keeping our feet on the ground. 

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

I've always been a dreamer. I think that's probably one of the reasons why clouds are part of my journey as an artist. I have a lot of aspiration to have a positive impact in people's live through everything that I do. I've spend the past couple years reigniting the creative spark in myself but also around me through the Toronto Urban Sketchers, meeting other artists and people who dream about becoming an artist as well, encouraging and inspiring them to follow their dreams as well. This project is part of that mission of encouraging others to live their dreams as well. You can find out more about me here

 

Risks and challenges

There are little to no risks as I already started to create the artwork. I envision completing all 100 by the end of March. I gave myself ample time to complete everything in time for them to be all shipped by the end of April 2017.
