When I joined Pinterest a few months ago, one of the first things I pinned was this piece of art. Since
I couldn't afford it the yellow in the painting didn't fit with my existing decor, I tried to recreate it using colors I have in my dining room.
The original painting was done with a palette knife, which was beyond intimidating. I asked the art teacher at my work for some help, and this is what was created:
I love it. Since it's semi-abstract, it's very forgiving with my beginner painting skills.
I framed it in a frame identical to the one I used for the doilies, so it matches without being too matchy.
This gives me motivation to stop just pinning and start doing!
