A few weeks ago, I came down with a nasty cold. I felt so disgusting that even watching TV was exhausting, but I was too stuffed up and miserable to sleep. So, after work one day, I decided to swing by Michael’s to pick up some new watercolor paints. I figured maybe some soup and DIY would cheer me up. And it did!
It was high time we replaced the DIY watercolors in the center of our gallery wall. Brad and I had painted them on computer paper just to test out my cheapo paint set. They were terrible. (Sorry, Brad. No offense.)
My new ones aren’t much better, but at least they’re on real watercolor paper and use better quality paint!
I’m particularly fond of the one on the bottom. It’s just blobs of color, but they’re pretty colors, and I’m so obsessed with watercolor lately, that’s really all I require.
It’s weird to call a painting “DIY,” since theoretically, unless you’re buying a print, all paintings are DIY … But since I’m not an artist (by any stretch of the imagination) and I created something to replace actual art, I think this qualifies as DIY.
The nice thing about being into abstract styles is that you can create a piece that makes you happy without having any talent whatsoever. Hooray!
Would you ever hang DIY art on your wall, or am I crazy?
