Welcome back to your week! How was your weekend? I worked a lot and played a lot with the kids. It was one of those super hot weekends, and while my husband worked in the yard I was either cooking or finishing a painting. This is actually the third painting I've done. I definitely have a certain style to my paintings but they are all different.
I tried painting the first time out of necessity: I couldn't find any art for my clients that fit their budget so I made one myself.
It still needs to be framed because it looks too small for the space, but you can read more about it here.
Then I thought I would make one for our own house. First, it went in our entry.
But I like it better in our living room. I'm going to add two more to this wall so there are three in a row. Right now the proportions are all off.
This weekend I made this painting inspired by waves:

I threw it on the wall just to take a picture for my friend so she could get a better idea of the size and how it looked from a distance.
I'm recommending she frame it in gold. So I put together a "coast chic" design board just for fun. You can click here to see all the sources. Just scroll down, click on an item, and click "shop it".
If you've ever considered painting I would
really encourage you to try!
