It’s been a while since we talked about being your own best artist.
I’ve been slowly updating our master bedroom, which had been neglected over the years. There was a watercolor hanging over our dresser that we purchased at an Art Show probably 25 years ago and it was really showing its age. The background of the painting was beginning to yellow and just didn’t flow with the cool, crisp feel I was seeking.
While I’m not going for a full on beach-y feel in our room, the cool blue/greens do lend themselves to that feel. And as we live withing walking distance of the ocean, it makes sense to have some link there.
I usually noodle ideas for a while until something speaks to me and images of coral spoke to me in this instance. This is an odd, narrow little area between 2 different shaped windows and I needed something with a little more height than width. I opted for 2 long narrow canvases as opposed to one big one.
I am happy with the way they turned out and feel that they were just what I needed in this area to keep the feel of the room light and airy.
I’d love to see some of your artwork! Please share it.
