Smart Art!

Blast from the Past!

Before pic of my client Nurse Joany’s living room in 2003
I’ve had these before and after shots on my website for a while now because
they show such a dramatic change.
Notice, that I took the picture from an angle where the left wall was exposed… due to the fact
that I recommended that my client purchase a large painting to go above the storage piece….
and Nurse Joany wanted to find exactly the right piece.
Fast track 7 years and I received such a pleasant surprise from my sweet Joany, a post written for her blog
Here it is:
Blank canvas
Paint and Brushes
Class in painting with acrylics
Arkansas Road Trip
Masterpiece completed

I understand that seven years is but the flap of a gnats wing when talking “art” so I guess I’m ahead of the game.
My ‘Masterpiece’ was created out of necessity. Our expansive, dull and boring living room wall was getting to me and on the advice of the fabulous Traci Connell with Connell Interiors, I was encouraged to purchase a large piece of art to place on the afore-mentioned wall. That was eight years ago.

Finding a painting my sweet husband and I both liked, for a price we felt comfortable with, proved futile. After attending various art fairs and galleries, it suddenly dawned on me that I could paint my own masterpiece. If it wound up looking stupid, I had the choice between displaying it or not. No big whup.

My inspiration began with a photograph from our Arkansas Road Trip. It was taken in the Fall of 2009.

A blank canvas and glass of wine…
An outline and a little color…
And now, the reveal…
“Arkansas Autumn”
I have to say that Nurse Joany outdid herself!  It is perfect for the room
 and perfect for Nurse Joany!
Until next time,
