I have family in town which means my schedule and daily rhythm is a bit off. I am not complaining, but I definitely missed my “Tuesdays with Rider”. No worries, though, Rider had plenty of fun this past weekend and yesterday. In fact, my sis-in-law, Lydia, took Rider for a walk on the coastal trail last night to watch the sunset. He’s spoiled with too many walks, treats, kisses, and hugs.
I have no videos to share with Rider, but I do have a few photos of a silhouette of Rider that I made a little bit ago.
A few weeks ago I saw this on Pinterest and I knew I wanted to do something like this for Rider.
I have been wanting to make a silhouette of Rides (yes, Rides – it’s another nickname) for over a year now and this was far better (in my opinion) than the typical black silhouette on white paper. When I showed it to Matt he loved it but preferred no “bright” colors. Shucks. So I found an image of Rider through the thousands I have on file and opened up Photoshop Elements and created a silhouette I liked. From there I stopped by Michaels and picked up a frame, matt, and a can of gold spray paint. I gave the frame a few thin coats of spray paint and waited a few days and then gave Rider’s silhouette a proper home in the new frame. The photos below are taken in the guest bedroom, but now Rider hangs proudly in my bedroom. (The color looks to be black, but it’s actually a purple/blue – I sure wish it was pink or yellow. I will break Matty K in slowly, but surely.) 🙂
Actually, I think I may have even framed this on a Tuesday so I suppose it’s fitting. Enjoy your Wednesday wherever you are!
