unfortunately, i've never been in the position to afford really nice artwork. but i have learned to improvise by creating my own.
what lexie can't have, she will create. it may not be museum quality, but for my house, it will do just fine.
instructions? pour yourself a glass of wine (or three), put on some tunes, grab a big brush, and make a palette of paint colors (i use acrylic) on a paper plate. dip your brush in water frequently to make the colors all blend (if that's the same look you're going for). sound easy? it is. and it's fun.
my local art store often has sidewalk sales which is where i scored my big 48" x 48" canvas 50% off.
this masterpiece took me a whole hour to make. of course, i was hosting a dinner party that very night and was on a mission.
(hosting at your home will do wonders for motivation.)
