Now that I own my own home, and am at an ever desperate attempt to decorate and fill the vast empty walls my home contains, I've began thinking about painting again. I would love to have original unique artwork instead of your typical reproduction prints you pick up in the home department at Target. I also like the idea of creating something that truly complements the colors in your home.
So, here we are, I found myself at hobby lobby picking up a few canvases and some acrylic paints this time. My husband bought me a free standing easel, and we got a few new brushes. I've decided to try my hand at a more abstract style painting, I still love the idea of painting landscapes, but I feel the desire to be more open in my interpretation of what a landscape is. My first painting was a lose interpretation of two doves on a wire, something my hunting husband loved, and the colors compliment our master bedroom, so it's a win-win.
I used acrylics and it is a highly textured canvas, using a texture medium. Not too bad for a 10 year hiatus if I do say so myself! More to come I'm sure!
