My Artwork

I bought a canvas back in the Winter time at a thrift store. It had a very ugly painting on it of fish and flip flops. (I'm pretty sure it was painted by a child) but for 50 cents it was a lot cheaper than buying a new canvas at Hobby Lobby. I wanted to paint a picture over it for Zoe's bedroom. Finally, this weekend I did it and I really love how it came out. I have never tried painting before except for the mural in Zoe's room. I know it's no Rembrandt but I think Zoe likes it! I was inspired by the artist Susan Van Horn. She does the cutest paintings of fairies and princesses. I sort of took her style and made it my own. This painting was really my inspiration. I didn't want to copy it though. I tried to make the girl look like how I imagine Zoe will look in 10 years.

and here is the painting hanging in her room.

Very pretty Sarah! Don't you just love murals too? I did a wall size mural of Noah's Ark in the nursery at Northgate FWBC in Lyman. Love murals! The painting is gorgeous too, great job!
