Wall decor ~

In a previous post I mentioned that my daughter had recently redecorated her both her dining room and front room, using soft shades of grey on the walls, accents of gold and brass and on the new round ottoman, a marvelous leopard print.

She was searching for a painting for one wall that would help pull it all together...something very loose, impressionistic in style and not terribly expensive. Otherwise a  difficult thing to find.

So...although I haven't painted in a while I thought is would be fun to try; if she liked it okay, if not no loss and into the dumpster it would go.

I ended up sitting on the kitchen floor to paint as this was the only place big enough for the large canvas. 

I worked on it on and off for a couple of days and this is what I ended up with. (I laughingly call it my two day masterpiece).
she liked it! 

 I tried to include all of the colors of the other elements in the room...basically a palette of greys and various earth tones. 

(I just realized that these are also Miss Twiggley colors)

It seems to work and it does help tie it all together. 

I love it when a project goes well!

Thank you for visiting.
