A little project

Let me start this post by fully acknowledging I am no artist. I fully appreciate art, but could never claim to be able to make it.

That being said, I should also note that I've been secretly craving a good painting session. There really is something therapeutic about laying out all the paint and brushes and just letting go. 

It started on Sunday afternoon, where I thought I could make a day of it and have a finished product by the end of the day.  But I learned really quickly that wasn't going to be the case. I had to tell myself multiple times to back away and come back later to do some more. 

I came home from work and decided the perfect end to a Monday night would be a glass of wine and adding the finishing touches to this piece, all while watching the dramatic part one ending of The Bachelorette. Yes, I watch that show. That poor girl was slaughtered last night. Been there done that, Des. Worst experience ever!!

And once I was finally finished, I hung the sucker right above my little bar (how fitting).

I should note that I know they need frames. I have no clue what I want at this point. That's something I'm going to need to marinate on.  Also, I'm aware this wall needs something else. Right now I'm thinking a pair on sconces. My top two choices are below. Which one do you like best?
 It's a work in progress, no doubt.I will leave you with a close up. I am quite pleased with the way the colors turned out. I really didn't want anything too bright so I think I found a happy middle ground.

  1. Those look really good! And I like Sconce option 2... but I'm not sure I'm the best one to ask. I need you to come in my house and tell me what to do!
