Have you ever been looking for large framed canvas art and just not found what you are looking for?!?
I really wanted a piece of modern, minimalist black and white art, and just kept coming up short! (Or actually small. Everything just seemed so small!
So, while I was out in my warehouse, I noticed I have a bunch of large framed canvas art (that I'm not super in love with) and decided to take the plunge and create something that I love!
I mean- it's black and white. It didn't seem like I'd have to mix colors or anything!
So, I pulled this dandy one out! I actually bought it off of Facebook Marketplace for about $15. Its 3'x4'. So, pretty large. And I just loved the gold wood frame. Don't you?
I got started by taping off the frame, applying some texture with drywall patch repair, and then letting loose with some Black (SW-Limousine Leather) and White (SW-Egret White) latex paint in eggshell finish.
I was instantly smitten!

Don't you just love the possibilities of all this knowledge?? I mean seriously. You could make a textured canvas and paint it all the same color and use it as a back drop for another piece of art.
Where do you like to find your "project pieces" from?
