Since I wanted to bring more blue into the girls’ room, I decided to take matters into my own hands and attempt some abstract art. I had two of these ugly (to me) canvases in our attic (that I had always intended to paint over anyway) and started by spraying them white.
I grabbed the blue paint that I used on their little desk and a few other colors that I already had going on in the room.
The general method to my madness was this: dab some, dilute color with water and dab some more, mix in some white paint, followed by more dabbing, working my way down the canvas. Is “dab” an artistic term? I think it should be.
This is how it went:
I showed my older kids when they got home from school, and they didn’t believe that I had painted them. I think I’ll take that as a huge compliment. . .
