Have you heard “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” ― Pablo Picasso I really don’t have musical ability and my artistic skills aren’t much better. Somehow it was time, I had to unleash my inner artist. That’s ‘arrrrti…..ssss…ttttt’ pronounced in a very long fashion for a word. I cam across a lovely inspiration picture from http://the2seasons.com/ blog. You can see it below. I could paint that. I loved the colors.
I went to Wal-Mart and found some canvas, paint and brushes. Slowly I made lines, short lines, long lines, blended lines. There isnt a right or wrong way. I wanted it to match as closely as I could. I only had 12 colors and some were black and brown, which I didn’t want in the picture. I mixed colors to get shades of red, pink, purple, blue, yellow, orange and green. Here is how it turned out.
What do you think?
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
― Leonardo da Vinci
Should it hang Vertical or horizontal?
Right now, I have it the frame horizontal (lines are vertical). I love it. Custom art at a inexpensive price, and a good way to freshen up for Spring.
