Last week during our little vacation, I went to the art store and bought a canvas, paint, and paint brushes. Our house is in serious need of abstract art, and although I haven't painted since college, I thought it would be a great project for us to do as a family.
Art can be a tricky thing, and abstract art is not something that is as easy to create as it looks. I love the work of Michelle Armas, Kate Long Stevenson, and Sally King Benedict.
As I prepared the supplies and stripped Tilley-Gray down to her diaper, I had visions of what it must be like to be a full-time painter. A little cottage in the country with a boho vibe? A dozen chickens and babies running around, all in white? Sounds appealing, doesn't it?
In the end, we made a few pieces that I really love and are special because Tilley-Gray helped smear the paint when she wasn't trying to eat the brushes.
Abstract art has a place in every home, whether you have a contemporary or traditional home. Cottage in the country or apartment in the city, I think this little reading nook would fit perfectly in most homes.
Do you have any favorite abstract artist? I'd love to hear!
