Are you an artist? I mean, can you see a picture in your head, and transfer that image to canvas with paint and brushes?
I’m not. To me, people who can do that are on par with those musical geniuses who can hear a song, and then sit down at the piano and play it without any sheet music in front of them. I could never do that either.
But I need a piece of artwork to bring some color to John & Alice’s mantel, and in the last week, I’ve been inspired by two paintings to perhaps try my hand at painting a real, actual piece of artwork. The though of that makes me nervous, but perhaps there’s a budding artist inside of me just waiting to express herself on canvas. Maybe. Maybe not. But I have this image in my head, and I have this feeling inside like I can’t rest until I get that image onto canvas. I’ve been inspired…
Aren’t those beautiful? I really want to try my hand at creating something similar, with the colors of the first painting, but the watery, subtle quality of the second. The thought makes me nervous. I wouldn’t even know where to begin.
Perhaps I’ll just ask my mom to paint it for me.
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
I hope you’ll join me on my DIY and decorating journey! If you want to follow my projects and progress, you can subscribe below and have each new post delivered to your email inbox. That way you’ll never miss a thing!
