Square in a Square Painting


I have been needing a new painting above my bed for a while now – the empty space has been bothering me but I just haven’t been able to find anything I like (in my price range)…

So this weekend I thought I might take a leaf out of Em's book and do my own painting.

This painting was super simple and was inspired by a print I had seen at Freedom a couple months back. I bought the canvas at a local discount shop for $20 and for the paint I just bought sample pots in 2 colour shades and mixed the third.

To achieve nice neat edges, I used painter's tape. It was a very simple project to do and now my room looks lovely with my new painting hanging above my bed.

Knife-Fork-Spoon Canvas for an Entertaining Area

This is another painting that I completed recently for a friend. It is going to be put in her outdoor entertaining/BBQ area. The area needed a bit of modernising, and a large, contemporary painting was a cheap and easy solution.

The painting is actually on two large canvases (see photo below), as this was a good way to give the entertaining/BBQ area the effect of having a feature wall (the canvases almost take up the whole wall). It's the simplicity of the design for this canvas that makes it work.

Happy painting!
