Hi All! So I just finished painting my living room lime green. (I know it sounds awful but it turned out so cute!) I have a great window focal point with a beautiful view, however I also had a huge blank wall that just screams out for attention. After endless searching for the right piece of art and not really seeing anything that suited my needs, I decided to try my hand at painting.
So on to the artwork that now graces my wall!

Just wondering...Does crafting cause more stress than it relieves?

That is SUPER cool.  Only thing I would have done differently (not bashing you, just -my- way) would have made the all the flowers with that boxy sort of design like that liny pink one in the upper right hand.

But yeah, that's completely awesome.  Love that composition, the idea.

And Lime green sounds cool.  I've got green walls, but not lime.  Its more like...Light pea green? I dunno.

Thanks! As far as the different flowers go, I should have explained that my kitchen/dinning area is painted aruba blue. The placemates that grace my table are the perfect shades of blue and lime green with just a hint of hot pink and have several different types of flowers on them. To make all three rooms flow together, I added identical flowers on the painting. That was my inspiration.

Oh, then in that case: Even more perfect! I would have done the same Smiley
