New art for my living room a DIY story...
It was a really rainy day around here, nothing to do outside,
so I decided to made a new painting for my living room;)
Here some proof for the bad weather;))
Look, really rainy, see all the water come`s down the sky lights? ;)
What should I paint...
I wanted one of these for a looong time, my own nautical piece of art,
my own octopus.
So I found an old picture at The Graphics Fairy
and four blanc canvases around here and started to draw...
I used a beige brown as the base tone and gave them with a dark brown color a little aged look.
Than placed the four canvases nearby and draw the octopus on them.
Get the brushes and mixed the right colors...
So, here it looks pretty ready, but something is missing...
Yes, you`re right, the Name of this underwater monster;)
I took the latin name and printed the right size on paper and than traced it on the painting.
Than I get my sharpie and the ink pens and the name was right on the painting.
That`s how it looks in this stadium, pretty ready I think,
than I put the varnish on the painting and thought about wall fixture.
How I get this baby on the wall?!
Look what I found;)
My hubby would kill me if he knew...
But he will find out and than it would be too late;)
A copper pipe, a small one, in our garage.
I measured, then saw them into 6 parts, measured,
drilled the holes, measured again, and screwed them on the painting;)
My wall fixture is ready...
Okay, are you ready?!
Drum roll please!!!
that is my own, custom made, new art piece of a octopus;)
I think it would perfectly fit in our new living room;)
What do you think?!
Do you like em as much as I do?!
