When I lived in LA and worked for an interior designer I remember the incredible art collections that some clients had and would drool at their galleries. Of course I was jealous and on a strict budget I figured I might dabble in trying to create my own abstract art. I had no idea how to paint, what kind of paint to get or for that matter been in a true art store my entire life. So, I turned to my friend Allie who taught me a thing or two about painting and went to town on Sunday afternoon.
As you can see, the neutral background really helps balance this piece out and every morning this painting makes me smile. Perhaps because I know it is an original (done by yours truly) and maybe because many visitors have commented on how much they like it. Of course I would love to have some killer art pieces done by true professionals someday soon but I think I will hang on to my very own custom art that I painted for a very long time. I think it might always have a place in my collection.
