Lemmie just preface this by saying - I'm a color whore. I LOVE color. My kitchen's green with bright red accents, my living room, though painted a muted almond color, is decorated in bold punches wherever the addled eye should wander. So when I decided to paint my own art instead of buying it already framed from Walmart as many as my WVian neighbors do (if I see ONE more framed poster of Water Lillies...) I thought, "Easy peasy. I'll splash a bit of orange here, a twirl of green and a punch of red and - done!" But I couldn't bring myself to do it.
I'm - uninspired.
Those blank canvases mock me from the large walls upon which they hang crookedly. Their white-eyed stares follow me from room to room like the paintings of the Masters whose subjects have eyes that seem to stare through you.
I'm not really sure why I'm so daunted.
Maybe because they are so starkly white?
Or because there are two?
Or maybe it's because my husband stares at me from the end of the couch with that look on his face like "Hey - what are you doing? Should you be doing that? Hey - is that what I would want you to do?"
Any suggestions for artwork? Short of squibbles and dots - I'm at a loss.
I've thought of painting a large Blenko-like bottle on them that stretches from one to the other, or a grouping of bottles so that you can see two slices of it from each canvas.
Or a large green happy face on one.
And a large orange one on the other.
So maybe I am Wal-mart inspired after all. :)
