My first real painting
Once upon a time I walked into a thrift store with high hopes of finding a cool vintage painting that I could hang on my new bare walls. I walked out with this piece above.
I thought I had made a good purchase. I mean yeah it was a bit different than what we were used to. But I was desperate to cover my walls, and for $12, I just had to take it.
Then I got home. My husband let me know just how much he did not want this piece in our living room. It took a while, but finally the veil had been lifted and I realized the same thing. dang.
So i decided to paint it. Keep in mind that I haven’t really painted anything in my whole life. It just seemed so intimidating. I’ll admit it, that since I was so intimidated I didn’t try to make an original painting. Instead I borrowed an idea from Sarah Goodreau.
She happens to be amazing and you should check out her work.
Annndd after 4 nights of painting (which I LOVED) here is my finished piece.
I think I found a new love in painting.
