Last week when I started on this project I was in the mood for sunny days and blue skies. I had recently been to one of the furniture stores in town to look for art. I found some but nothing I could say would live in my room for forever and with prices of $300 and up, I needed the artwork I picked to have staying power.
So instead of that I just decided to use what I had. I already had these three pictures from ikea. I thought the white frames looked decent above my bed. I really liked the way they filled in the space. But something was off.
One day while the littlest boy was sleeping I pulled off the backs of the frames and took out the prints.
I made sure whatever I did to one painting, I mimicked in the other paintings as well. For example, I painted the horizon line in a purpley blue all the way across all three paintings. Then I added darker blue for the bottom of each painting and mixed in white for the top of the paintings. I also tried to keep my brush strokes the same throughout.
I don’t know how long these will stick around but I like them even more than I thought I would.
The weather is now full of blue skies inside and outside of my home. Hoping its that way for you too.
