Personalized Living Room Art

If walls could speak, then the ones in my living room would be shrieking in despair! Heaven knows my living room needs a major makeover. Everything just looks so drab and lifeless- and to think that that’s where I go to recharge after a long day’s work!

What I think it needs is a touch of art. But instead of spending a fortune on paintings by renowned artists, I figured it would be better for my daughter and I to make our own artwork.

I consider myself lucky as one of my friends holds weekly art workshops for kids. She teaches them various art methods- including painting on canvas. I’m guessing she’ll take my daughter in as a student in exchange for me showing her where she can get loads of wholesale canvas online! Anyway, even before my daughter starts going to art class, I already have a few ideas in mind.

Outdoor scenery always works. If I paint desert dunes or a green meadow, for instance, that’s going to bring a sense of calm to the room. Nature never fails to relax us.

Anything with water is also soothing. A painting of fish swimming or a rolling brook will evoke tranquility.

Caricatures of people will bring an element of humor to any space.  I know my daughter wants to paint pictures of her friends looking silly.

Art is usually a reflection of one’s personality. With my daughter and I creating our own pieces for our living room, we’ll be making our living space truly our own. Now that’s bespoke art at its finest!
