Or…ok…just a design. But it can be as much fun as painting the town.
Haven’t you always wanted to paint your own art? And what a great conversation topic with visitors when they see it hanging in your house for the first time?
That quote…art is in the eye of the beholder…is so true. What I like may not be what someone else likes anyway.
How can I accomplish something myself….you ask?
What if I am not talented?
There are so many options.
Take a class and they will show you how to paint a piece such as this fabulous one by a dear friend of mine.
Paint something completely abstract (for those of you who feel like you can’t draw)
Or peruse the Internet (love Art.com) and find a print to replicate.
And if you can’t freehand, you can always borrow one of those projectors that project a picture on the wall, place your canvas there (unless of course your are painting directly on the wall) and trace.
It’s a lot easier than you think, can be loads of fun and you can have just the right piece that both reflects you and your style and is a much more perfect match to fit into your room design.
Your challenge is to take some free time and see what you can come up with. I bet you will surprise yourself.
Stay tuned for a later post in which you can learn how to replicate a specific design.
