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:

lexilicious ,

Thanks! The fabric canvvas is going to be one of my next projects, too. I am going to just make a frame out of 1x2 s and stretch the fabric remnants across that, instead of buying new canvases.

Thanks you guys!!! I have thought about selling some kind of art at a local craft/farmer's market. But, I think I would feel like a "fraud," like "I'm not really an artist, just someone with way too much time on her hands and some free paint." I am still considering it though...just mulling it around in my mind until I grow a pair of GONADS! Smiley
