I like to paint, I just don't do it too often anymore. When we were stationed at Ft. Campbell, KY I had my own buisness doing decorative painting. It was fun, but I was never overly comfortable doing it for other people. I like working with fabric so much better!! Fabric is consistent and after a customer picks out their fabric, it isn't going to change. It is concrete. Painting is more about personal prefrences, creativity. Needless to say, I don't paint for other people any more. Except Handsome Hubby. He loves for me to paint and he always shows a little dissappointment when I bring home a framed picture that I bought from somewhere.
As I'm sure you have noticed by now, every pictrure of my living room on here shows that I still have blank walls. I just didn't have anything in my stash that fit the bill. I wanted two pictures that worked together and were the same size to go over my two chairs. I started searching for something, but when hubby found out I was looking, he went to Joannes and bought me two matching pictures.
Two blank white canvases.
Last night I decided to start the first of the two. I knew I wanted a white flower with a blue background. It didn't take me long to sketch out the flower and then I pulled out the paints. Before I knew it, I had finished the entire painting. I am pleased with how it turned out. Now all I have to do is make another one for the other side of the wall!
