The background hills were already done, so I did the green hill, the house, and the trees yesterday. I think I'm happy enough with it to hang it above the piano--the wall is an olive green color, so it should work nicely. I bought another canvas the same size this weekend (hello sale!) which I plan to paint something a little more abstract on for that space above the entertainment center I showed y'all. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
Here's an idea for you artsy/artsy curious types. Got scrapbooking paper?? Make paper art! When I went to Alaska, we found this really cute shop with framed paper art hanging everywhere and my mother in law kept saying, YOU COULD TOTALLY DO THIS! I took lots of mental snapshots and created a piece of my own. Not sure where to hang it yet...
There are some friends of mine who get a little testy that I have so many things I do. But you know what I say to them? If you're interested in something, TRY IT. I'm not a master at anything I do, but I do it because I like it (jack of all trades, master of none--sounds about right).
You never know if you can do something until you try. :)
