Well, the picture is crooked - blame the photographer! I needed something above my desk and this was perfect! I found this huge canvas - it's like 24"x30" - on sale 1/2 off at Michaels! Pinterest has tons of examples of black and white canvas art, which I knew would be a perfect accent to my new home office/library. I found a quote I loved. In fact, I've had it on my desk for a month to make sure I loved it!
I finally got brave and just painted. Yes, I free-handed it. You can probably tell. I wanted something random and organic. I decided I liked the irregularity of my own penmanship rather than the tracing and painting in of someone else's. I left some white in the letters and added a few squiggles - which in hind-sight, I wish I had done differently, but it is what it is. I love it and can't wait to just add a chair to the room. Found one, just don't want to part with the cash. I'm still looking for a bargain. "Sigh!"
Spring Break will officially be over in about 10 hours, but the time away certainly got my creative juices flowing. I hope I can keep the momentum. It feels great to create!
