So You Think You Can Paint?

I hope yall are gearing up for hurricane Irene! Please be safe and prepared for the worse.  As for me, I'll watch the water creep up and hope no trees crash on top of my car

If you follow me on twitter, you may remember a few weeks ago I purchased the largest canvas Michael's had in stock.  It was so big it wouldn't even fit in the trunk of my car, so I considered that a pretty big success.  So this giant thing has been taking up space in our kitchen for a while. I had no idea what to actually do with it, I just knew I needed it.

Last week I had a lot of alone time, and figured I might as well just do it.  And do whatever the hell I want with it.  Please know I am not an artist/painter and don't consider myself to be one! I only have about 8 colors of paints (most of which are various shades of teal) so I at least had fun mixing a lot of colors in tubberwares and seeing what happened...

Now we have a 3 foot by 4 foot painting hanging between two tall windows in our bedroom.  I gotta admit, I kind like it. A lot.  And it's a pretty good view from the bed!

Do you ever go outside of your 'crafting comfort zone'??? Have you been happy with what you made, or just decided to stick with what ya know?

  1. You are so talented! I love the paintings! That is a way good idea to make your own. Now I feel like going to get a big huge canvas and doing one myself!

    Thanks for all of your comments on my blog! Sailor really is bigger than she was in the pictures last month. It blows my mind!

    You are so crafty!
