Shadow Painting......


I was wandering about in the woods and found some bittersweet. It's an invasive vine that will strangle trees but the berries and their covers are still pretty and you only find them in the fall. I arranged a few branches in our kitchen for a little autumn color.


My husband walked in and saw the shadows the berries and branches were casting on the wall from the overhead light. While the pictures didn’t capture it very well the shadows are dark gray in color. He thought it might be fun to paint the shadows onto the wall.


What do you think, should I paint the shadows in the gray they’re casting or not?

those shadows ARE lovely. They would make a beautiful pattern painted on the wall....you may be onto a wallpaper design!

A steady hand and a brave heart would be required to pull this off, but I think your husband has a good idea here.

I think it is more beautiful and mysterious this way.
It does look amazing!

Isn't it amazing how beautiful nature can be! I think it would be great to paint it on the wall, however, either way, it's still such a lovely look. I can imagine late evenings when the sun is setting too, how lovely the shadow must seem...XX

I agree with Coté Provence, it is more beautiful and mysterious this way ;-)

I absolutely love bittersweet. The shadows are amazing. I'm in agreement that makes them more special. Everything natural and in its purest form.
