  I redecorated our master bedroom recently, and everything was perfect except a huge empty wall. It needed something but I couldn't find anything perfect enough for it. So I thought I'd try making something. Worse that happens is I don't like it, right? I've always liked dandelion art but I needed some color so this is what I came up with. I'm not sure they are dandelions now but whatever. I used an XL canvas. I created the background using different shades of grey and purple and sprayed it down with water for a rainy-streaky effect, which turned our great...but warped the frame. I'll have to fix that, until then I can't hang it up. Then some brightly painted flowers, which I kept tweaking because I couldn't settle on if they were okay or not. In the end, its everything I could have wanted for the space.
Please excuse the mess on the dresser. My DH likes to put just about everything on it.

I like it. It has an other worldly feel to it. I hope you find a way to unwarp the frame. Smiley

I like it, It's got a Suessian feel to it, and I like that. Smiley
