Painted Alphabet for the Letter X

So.

Yeah.

X just didn't inspire me to paint anything.

Instead I'm sharing two x-tra large signs I've painted of late for orders.   I'm working on an even larger one now - 40" x 60" and I think it's going to be awesome.

I had also planned to share some x-tra small signs I've been fooling with, but they aren't done yet.


X

 
This sign is 37" x 37".  Blue and green in the background with a black-ish expresso color underneath the antique white letters.   It's heavy!

 
26" x 46".  The background is painted with lyrics but it's a bit hard to see here.

 No stencils. No stickers. No vinyl.  Handpainted with my own layout.

You can see other signs in this series by clicking on 'Painted
Alphabet' in my sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by!

Dear JENNY!

Well hello there! You came as swiftly as I could not imagine!! I thank you so much for your kind comment and I did not know you are an artist; so am I. In fact, I best get into my studio before the day gets away from me any further! Your signs are wonderful!!! Anita

Very nice signs ! X indeed isn't an easy letter, but I found some definitions of X !

Cathy Kennedy said...

It can be difficult to be inspired by certain letters in the alphabet, I must admit. But, you did alright here - an X-large sign now that's creative! Thanks for being so faithful to read my Alphabe-Thursday posts. I don't understand how you can go through so many blog entries religiously week after week like you do. No doubt, this takes an x-ordinarily special lady such as you to do! =D

And here we have my friend Jenny, the only woman to possess every talent. That's right, folks, she truly does everything, and she does it well!

I especially like the first sign--I'll have to remember to smile at people as I go through my day today. That seems like a good way of letting it begin with me. Thanks for the reminder.

I'm in love with the second one. Looks like something I should give Dave for our 40th anniversary next month.
