Pinterest-ing: Painting

It's been another lull in my posts.  The weather here is Ohio has been all over the place and thus I have not been very motivated to do anything.  For me, this has been one of the toughest winters where I have nothing to show, but messes, for all of the time spent indoors.

Well today, I am going to share a little something I put together a few weeks ago.  I am very fond of the beach and ocean.  Yes, I live in the country, but am obsessed with the beach cottage look.  Anyway, I found this picture on Pinterest and loved the artwork.  It reminds me very much of the ocean.
 So when Katie Bower announced her winter Pinterest Challenge, I knew what I wanted to do.

I ran to Michael's and picked up an artist canvas.  This one was a 16x22 inch canvas and that week they happened to be 30% off- score!  Then I just went at it.  No real strategy, just winged it.  The paint was all stuff I had on hand, just mixed the colors to my liking.  Like I said, no strategy!

My oldest was completely intrigued by it, so last weekend I went back to Michael's and picked up a few more smaller canvases for he and little T.  They had a blast creating their own paintings.  I'll share their work sometime soon.

Not bad for less than $20 and adding some much needed color to the hall gallery wall.  This definitely puts me in the mood for some pineapple juice and rum....
