We got arty!

I have been looking for a big painting to hang in our dining room. And have discovered that I have expensive tastes LOL
Even the 'cheap' paintings that i liked were kinda expensive.

So I decided I could do it myself.
*sigh*
Will I ever learn??? LOL

So Sammy and I pulled on our artists smocks (they may LOOK like aprons, but are in fact, for today, artist smocks) and gathered our paints and brushes and cotton buds (see how professional this was going to be??) I think my true artist status is confirmed by my oh so glamorous Mr Men drop cloth. Actually, this may be considered 'vintage'. I should have listed it on ebay and paid for a REAL painting LOL
Next time...
So I got to painting....

And I did this!

I am actually pretty happy with how it looks. And it is indeed huge. Measures 160cmx 50 cm
It fills an empty space on the wall anyway ;)
