First up is a painting I did for Chris a few years ago for his 21st birthday. Chris spent four months in Fiji between high school and college and it's a place that is very close to his heart. I took one of his favorite photos from his time there and did my best to recreate it using acrylic paints on an 11x14 canvas board. I miss this style of painting and would love to get back into it if I ever have some free time!
Here's the original photo I chose to work from.
And here is the painting that is now hanging in our bathroom.
I need to get a frame for it because it's starting to warp from the Hawaii air. Also, I would have shown you our whole bathroom but it was a mess as I was packing to leave for Thailand. So you just get the close-up wall shot.
So what do you think? Are you interested in seeing more pieces of art on our walls? Do you have your own artwork on your walls?
Happy Tuesday, friends!
