A Blank Canvas

I've spent the last month searching for large pieces of artwork for our new walls that wouldn't break the bank.  Unfortunately, these two things don't go together.  Eventually I came up with the crazy idea of painting a canvas myself.  I hadn't painted in years and wasn't quite sure I still had any skill but I decided to go for it.  Aaron Brothers was having a sale on large canvas' and I scored a 48"x36" one for about $47 - much cheaper than any art you could buy at that size! Plus, I still had most of my acrylic paints saved from years past so it's really I needed to spend.


 
Having such a large blank canvas stare at you can be a little intimidating so I decided to get a little inspiration.  I found two different photos online that peaked my interest.  I printed them out and used them as a guide...

Your painting is beautiful, you never forget how to be artistic.
