At the Broadripple Art Fair, CR saw a canvas painting she really liked. Really liked until we saw the price tag of $1200. I whispered to her "We can make this." She gave me a dumbfounded look. I had textured all of my bathroom walls in the past, so I instantly figured out how I could recreate the piece. And I told her I'd only charge her a portion of that price. So I had arts and crafts day at the lake. Seemed like the perfect outdoor activity.
Stage 1 - Acquire blank canvas
I had this canvas left over from a 3 piece art set I did a few years ago for over the headboard in my master bedroom.
Stage 2 - Add texture
Stage 3 - Apply paint
Stage 4 - Hang it

Since there is no test or license involved, I have decided that I am officially an artist now! Just need to figure out a cool signature to mark my work. Once I do, I think I should apply for a booth at the 2013 BAF! Now, who's got their wallet open for this piece?! Or want a custom piece made... let's talk!
