first i painted this for my room. it was fun. i love orange.
then i drew these. i picked up these hideous brown cheap frames from a yard sale a month or so ago, sprayed painted them a cheerful yellow, and then shelved them because i wasn't quite sure what to do with them. suddenly inspiration hit--why not draw some simple little portraits of my husband and i to hang above our separate sides of the bed? and...voila! silly ink drawings that look pretty much like us. though i think my face is WAY chubbier than this in real life.
then...drumroll please...after a YEAR AND A HALF of being annoyed with this monstrosity, i finally decided to just finish the dang thing already and move on. i have to say that as difficult and obnoxious as this was to paint (why oh WHY would i think that many colors on one huge canvas was a good idea??)i am pretty proud of it. and i have no idea where to put it. alas.
i feel pretty good getting back to doing art. i've spent the last year mainly sewing which is fun but i've been jonesing to wield a brush for months now.
