So after sitting on the couch recovering some surgery for 4 days and watching nothing but cooking, crafting and decorating shows - I HAD to do something. We have one of those livingroom...dinningroom...into the kitchen type layouts in our house, so there is a long blank wall in between two windows. Well I didn't want to toss up more photo frames and a mirror wouldn't work over the couch, so I thought I'd paint something. I had two 24x30in stretched canvases in my stash so I pulled colors from our couches and color scheme and came up with these. They're slightly abstract, but I really enjoy how they came out. The colors are a little on the dark side, which looks great against our light walls and carpets. Anyways, Thanks for looking!

and just to show them up on the wall...

I still have to finish the edges, I'm just going to paint a nice dark brown/black on the sides to "frame" them.

Why is it that I can no longer buy anything that has a slight chance I could make it myself? Even if I don't know how to make it, or it's cheaper to buy...I can no longer buy it because "I could make that myself".

These look really nice! I especially like the yellow flowers...the highlights just pop right out. They definitely liven up the space.
