One project I actually finished a couple of months ago prior to moving and the current choas... was an owl painting which I free handed using only an inspirational picture of an owl I found somewhere. For this painting, I used acylic paints and I am fairly excited about how it turned out. Now I am no expert artist by any means, but for my second, well, third painting I have to say I think it is solid. Here is a pic of the finished product.
Sorry about the darkness of the picture...it is always so hard to find adequate light inside the house for taking pictures.
I am so glad that I finally went against my better judgement and chose the yellow background because it goes so well we the rest of the room decor, as well as gives the walls a vibrant pop.
