Ok, remember how I said I was hoping I'd have something really cool to share? I do! I finished a quick project that's been on my mind for some time.
Upstairs at our house we don't really have a hallway, because the house is small-ish and instead of having a long hallway and smaller rooms, there's just a landing and the doors to the bedrooms and bathroom. When you walk up the stairs though you're face to face with a big, blank wall. Since we moved in we thought that was a perfect place for one big piece of artwork. We searched high and low for a painting that was big enough, not terribly expensive, and very "us." We came up dry. Finally I thought, let's just paint something directly on the wall! Then I was looking at one of my most favorite smaller paintings we have downstairs and thought I'd recreate it and modify it a bit. The painting is called "The Tree of Life." Here it is:
And I pencil drew it on the wall upstairs and painted it in yesterday. Ta-da!!!
My idea is we buy a bunch of small pictures frames and fill them with photos of friends and family and our trips together so it's the tree of our life. :) Cheesy right? Anyway, there it is!! I gotta admit I'm pretty proud of it.
