This post from the gals at Rock Scissor Paper is an example of why I should have my camera with me at all times. It's a great reminder for me because one of my New Year's Resolutions is to take more photos to help me *see* all the beauty and inspiration that is around me every day (Which, by the way, I've failed so far).
I have a little before-and-after for you today. A little art for my husband as a Christmas gift.
I found these pseudo-oil paintings in a thrift shop. They were labeled "French, 1950's". I think the frames are beautiful and were exactly what I was looking for. So, I primed over the prints, painted the frames with a lovely brushed nickel spray paint (Valspar, I think) and transferred the silhouettes I did of our two pups and painted them with gouache. I added monograms for them too. "A" for Addie and "C" for Conner.
Ta-Da! They're hanging in our living room next to my Keep Calm poster (in Apples and Orange orange, PMS 151) from sfgirlbybay.
