I bought the biggest canvas Hobby Lobby had and got to work. I didn't even get to hang it on the wall though; we bought our house pretty much as soon as I finished it.
I decided to use it as the basis for my bedroom. I'm thinking the walls are going to be swimming pool blue. It will probably take a few testers to get that color right :)
The painting is no where close to perfect, but I really like it. All my art projects are not such a success though. This Georgia O'keefe inspired one didn't turn out so hot.
