Pick Up a Paint Brush

A few weeks ago I blogged about my current, favorite pieces of art: all abstract, large, and colorful. I envy these paintings and the talent of the artist who created them… but with some research, I found that both were painted by 20 something year olds just like me. I haven’t painted in a while and had some time so thought I’d take a stab at two of my favorites. They are definitely no Picasso and I want to eventually re-do both in different colors, but hey – first try not so shabby.

Grab canvases at Hobby Lobby for cheap (especially if you are using the 40% off coupon), pick up the paint brush and go for it! Large artwork for your home can be 10X cheaper this way with a little bit of practice. and Hey, who knows? You could be the next Monet or Pollock.
