I have been wanting a large piece of art on the wall to replace the tree branch I put up for Christmas, and have been decorating ever since. Today I found the artist who will be creating this for me. I haven’t decided how much I will pay her for the piece but can’t wait to get into the city to purchase the canvas for her to work on.
It all started with a few ideas I’d been looking at online, Pinterest is a wonderful place for inspiration, unfortunately I had saved these without keeping the original source, if you recognize one or more of these please let me know so I can give proper credit. Here are a few I found.
I liked the bright colors of this flower.
There was this idea of wooden letters, I thought I might be able to use cardboard and brighten it up with more color than what was here.
Then there was this piece created with paper.
There was even this made from wood.
Then there were stripes. This one made me a little dizzy but there was something I liked about it.
I thought some thing like this might be simple enough.
I love this, it’s simple yet colorful.
I might be talented enough to create something similar to one of these.
And finally this from the Simply Living Blog. I’ve seen several forms of this all over Pinterest, which uses scrap book paper many on large canvases.
Then today I gave my grandchildren some spiral notebooks given to me. My grand daughter immediately got to work creating this. She wanted no help, no direction, and no suggestions. I wasn’t about to interfere I was enjoying watching her. There was no hesitation or critique of her work; she created for the pure joy of it, confident in her ability.
Then she proceeded to work with a combination of markers and crayons and came up with this.
She proceeded to create another picture completely different, using circles and intersecting circles. It too was gorgeous, but I forgot to get a picture. Looking at her creations I realized I didn’t have to worry about inspiration, she has enough for both of us.
