Yass it's December so we can finally share this painting!
This spot has been an ongoing saga.
I have painted it a bunch of times now but unfortunately it keeps getting painted over.
Myself and @negativedestination had both painted it the week before and it got buffed rapid.
@philtheflorist was annoyed at the council for painting over it but ever the optimist he said this was an opportunity for a new painting and suggested that something festive be done.
I got in touch with @negativedestination again to tell about the request and he was more than happy to get involved. He went out the same night and smashed out the perfect wee Santa Melon/Cactus/Pickle character.
I have to say this made me so fucking happy. Here is a dude who has been inspired to get out and paint and within two months is taking requests and smashing them out the park.
The next night was my opportunity to go and I was super buzzing all day to do it.
As the night went on I started to feel super anxious about it, I had never HAD to paint anything before. This was obviously a self imposed need but I really wanted to do it as ND had smashed his section so much.
I started to question why I was doing it and it became a bit of an inner battle of self doubt and questioning my motivations.
I eventually fell asleep and then woke up at the time to go do it.
I got to the spot and just started painting. It was so cold that by the end my hand had frozen and I could no longer feel it.
It was all worth it though.
The feeling I got when I looked back from across the road to see this wall, which is my eyes was the perfect collab, painted officially unofficial but on request was such a good buzz!
We did this one for the kids!
Unfortunately someone complained and the council painted over it 5 days later but if you got to see if you know it was a belter!
Have a good December everyone!
