Latest Project

So there's this quote that I really like and I wanted to display it on a large scale.  I used some JoAnn's coupons to get an 18 x 24 canvas, picked up some black acrylic paint and used leftover white paint from a previous project

First I typed this up on the computer.

And used it as a guide to paint it on canvas!
It's definitely not perfect and will probably undergo a little tweaking, but for now it's hanging in our kitchen to remind us to make the most of what we've got.

At one point during my hours of painting, Kyle so cleverly suggested that perhaps I could have just used the one I made on the computer and printed it poster size and framed it...

But I reminded him that I insist on doing everything the hard way.
