This was a pre-made, framed print - it had been purchased at a Blockbuster years ago. We taped it off & painted the canvas white with a primer.
A lamp & pillow were the color/style inspiration, but that was about it. I was given free reign to create my own design. So here I am wondering how to get this started. Her son wanted a large piece of artwork and I have never, ever tried anything like this. The print was destined for Goodwill if it didn't get a makeover, so I had nothing to lose.
Ah, an old dog can learn new tricks. I am by no means an expert at any of this, but I can say trying is half the battle. It's not what ya know but what ya do. I got so inspired I even went out & bought new brushes. There's nothing like a natural bristle that will get the stroke on . . . Oh Yeah!
