Watercolors

So painting with watercolors on canvas is really fun! The canvas regularly cost about $5 a piece, and next time I get a coupon for Mich*els I will get more. After the boys saw me carefully draw and paint my picture, they are interested in doing another one with more thought put into it.

So here is our plain hallway turned Art Gallery:

And since we had an extra canvas (they came in packs of 2), I tried my hand at watercolors:

Very cool, it really brightens up the hall. It must be so neat for the boys to see their work so neatly displayed.

I love the color!

Isn't it wonderful to have some bright colors in the hall.

Inexpensive poster frames (when Michaels or Hobby Lobby has a sale) and you will not need expensive art reprints on your walls. You will have the originals!
