I am doing this whole space with things I already own. I got the sign up and now the curtains need to get up. I had it all in my mind of what I wanted and then changed it. A woman's prerogative, right? I wanted something different, something that expressed me. I decided to paint a couple of canvases. I was going to paint it like the fabric curtains I wanted till I spoke to my friend Lesley from The Homeless Finch. She said, "Paint something different. If you are going to paint a curtain just buy a curtain." My phone call with her got me thinking! She was right! She inspired me! I did want something I haven't seen anywhere else. Something that adds to my style! Boy, did I do something different!
This is a series of two abstract paintings titled The Dream Begins Since the blog name is dreamingincolor I wanted the painting to represent the dream. Starting with black and white and grey and gradually adding color. Too much info? LOL
There is more color and less black,white and grey, The dream is starting to become.
Since it is the beginning of the dream there are only two colors blue and coral...the colors in my room
I love the way they work in the space! I know its not for everyone but think of something that would work for you. Just paint and hang above your window. You could tape off a pattern like a chevron, paint stripes, even florals, Give it a try. These two canvases were only $22. I keep many in stock and buy on sale or with coupons. Not bad for two windows!
The space is coming along. Lots and Lots of work to do!! Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek!
