My Biggest Painting Ever!

I finally tackled that big empty canvas staring me in the face this last month.

It was quite intimidating for this non-painter but I am really happy with the results!


It's really layered so I had to do several "sessions" over a week or two to get it the way I wanted.


I ended up adding the dark gray in towards the end because I thought it was looking too sweet.


I'm really glad I did, it helps to give the painting some weight.

I think it's the perfect thing for my office now.


I also got in a sample of this inky blue tile we are going to use as the accent in our hall bathroom reno.

If only the tile place in town would get their stupid subway tile in so we could get started!

Finished any projects lately?

Happy Thursday!

Oh yes! I love it. And a big yes to adding in the gray. It gives it gravity. I love it above our little Canton find. XOXO
