Crazy About Color

I have finally almost finished a project!  Woo-hoo!  

Several months ago, I spied a painting at World Market that I thought was too cool.  Of course, I was too cheap to actually buy the thing.  Instead, I decided to make a copy cat version of it myself.

I've been really into geometric patterns lately, and have always been crazy about color.  This painting was a great combination of those things.

It's a super simple painting in appearance.  However, making perfect circles, connecting perfect circles, and then overlapping perfect circles is a lot harder than it appears.

Here's the almost finished painting above my sewing table.  

Several months ago, I painted the walls of my craft room Fairy Wren by Ralph Lauren.  It's a soft grey with green undertones.  A very warm grey.  I love the way the grey looks behind the colors.  It makes me so stinkin' happy to look at it.  

The best part about painting is how my 4 year old wants to participate.  After I finished painting, he asked for his own palette (aka paper plate) and some paint.  Here's his first real abstract painting:

My buddy's got talent, right?  :)


  1. I love the paintings! I see a little 'starry night' inspiration in your son's painting ;) Also, I LOVE the onsies in your shop. So so cute makes me wish I had a set of twins myself.

  2. Wow! I love how yours turned out! Very cool!

    I want to share it on my FB's too cool.
