I have a personal story for today…
My husband left to work in Northern Arizona today. He is a fish biologist working a seasonal job while I stay here with the kids to keep things stable.
Oh how I miss him.
Did I tell you we are both from Arizona? We met, dated, and got married there. Although I am not sure we will go back, I cherish the memories we made there. So, I made this canvas to remind me of them.
It’s patterned off that super popular state art found on etsy. The shop seller, q.a. design, just made her prints free for download too! Check it out here. (update on 5/15/2013: it seems she has closed her blog and shop to the public. I apologize for the inconvenience.)
I painted mine right before she did that…bummer. Still, it worked out because I got to pick my colors and where I wanted to put my heart (for the Utah art).
I just used old recycled canvases, hence why the canvas has little imperfections on them…They’re actually from distressed canvas projects that didn’t work out.
Speaking of…You could also download a print, reverse it, and apply to a canvas using the distressed canvas tutorial.
I also made one of where we live now, but I hope you understand why I’m not going to show you where the heart on that one is. 😉
So while I play single mom, I’ll be sporadic around here. I might post more because I need a sanity break, or less because I’m swamped.
Either way…thanks for reading. I really appreciate it. 🙂
