Hi everyone. I have finally figure the mother out...
Quote from first post:
We recently moved into a larger house and had zero art to adorn all of the walls. So I said, "Hell, if they do it on Trading places, you can too." I purchased plain cheapy canvases (12.00 - 20.00) from Michael's Arts and Crafts and used left over house paint (interior latex - but I don't think it natters) and a starter set of acrylics that I bought at a gararge sale for $2.00. If you are especially handy, you could "stretch" your own canvas over a simple wooden frame and it would be cheaper.
The first painting took three tries. If you don't like the way the painting turned out, you can wait for it to dry, sand lightly with 220 grit sandpaper and repaint.
Here are the results:
