Spring Break Project #3


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!
