☔️✨😱 ...being able to build my own custom size canvases and wooden panels has many advantages, but I was in for a trip with this piece.
Until this point I would normally build 4x4 ft. or a 4x6ft and neither of which matched the proportions of the Prince I had illustrated, so I opted to make it 4ft wide and whatever height I needed to perfectly accommodate all the elements I wanted to fit.
next, about a month after Prince had passed, and a couple weeks after I finished painting the piece, I saw an article called "surprising Prince facts" where it mentioned a few random things as well as Prince's height 5'2" (or 62") which sounded oddly familiar, and when I put the measuring tape to the painting, I got chills as it read a perfect 62" in height. 😳😱
