I had a very large space on my wall to fill, so I took a couple of pieces of plywood I had around the house, primed them with white latex paint, and started painting them. I used Folk Art and Apple Barrel paint by Plaid. First step was to lay down a colorful background.
I really wanted to do something playful and fun on this, similar to some of the pieces I have seen lately by Stephanie Corfee, so I kinda went wild with my brush. And I hated it. Hated. It.
Not to worry, I covered it back up with more color. I decided on some simple brush strokes to embellish the painting because I had so much room to cover (like 3 feet by 4 feet).
Here's a detailed shot.
And the finished piece on my wall.
