Previously, I posted about starting a spiral herb garden for my internship project. I will no longer be doing that project, instead I will be painting murals onto a display structure on the farm. I have already primed two of the eight boards on the structure and completed one painting all together.
The howdy farm had a T-shirt designing contest a few weeks ago. Corey drew an entry for the contest. This is actually where I got the first draft sketch for my painting. I love that this painting was a collaboration of sorts. The howdy farm is all about bringing people to work together for enjoyment and education and this reflects in my painting.
This painting is supposed to incorporate the basic principles of seed germination. Depicting, light, water, and a seed that has been germinated. The bright colored background just adds some more fun to the painting and to the farm in general.
This is the final product. I love all of the bold lines and bright colors. It makes me happy that future howdy farmers and visitors will be able to enjoy something that I personally added to the farm.
My name is Cheyenne and I am a horticulture student at A&M. I am loving my internship, this semester. Being an intern at the (most amazing) howdy farm this fall is just one of the many ways I intend on making the most out of my last semester. I hope you all will find my blog entertaining and informative. I'm so excited to be apart of the farm and I am looking forward to learning all about it!
