Black & White Abstract Art
Whenever Matt goes out of town, I usually paint something. That something is typically a room, and typically I’m slightly unsure he’ll agree with my color choice hence the call to action while he’s gone!
This weekend, I did a different sort of painting. I wanted to relax a bit and had some movies I’d been wanting to see (Blue Jasmine & Life of Pi, both excellent), but I cannot do anything where my hands aren’t busy. If I’m watching TV, I’m also crafting something or sketching or maybe folding clothes… something else so that I don’t feel like I’m rotting my brain glued to the tube.
Anyway, back to the painting. I was inspired by some of the recent sharpie projects I’d seen on the interwebs. Both Brittany and Caitlin went at recreating the classic Brunschwig & Fils Les Touches fabric, which is an abstract snow leopard-type print. I loved what these girls did, but wanted a little more variation and customization in my designs. I used the fabric as a jumping off point for inspiration, but varied mine quite a bit. The outcome is a little bit natural (animal print) and a bit abstract.
I hung the two paintings (which I’ve dubbed spotted I and spotted II) in my living room above a corner accent chair. I am slowly trying to balance some of the simple, rustic, scandinavian touches in my home with the right bit of modern. I think these paintings definitely help!
What are your thoughts on the paintings? Different enough from the original?
ALSO, I am going to post a step be step tutorial later this week, so come back if you love them!
p.s. My closet clean-out is going on over on the instagram account @erinsclosetcleanout – follow and bid on designer pieces that I’m (sadly) parting with after hoarding without use!
