Feeling blessed and happy with a vacation coming next week! It will be relaxing and fun with our family together and enjoying the white sand beaches of Destin, Florida. My plan is to sit on the beach and dream of getting my Whimsical Art Queen Studio Coloring Book plan of action complete.

Inspiration Project Completed

InspirationI am so amazed and happy my Inspiration Art project, 5 canvas painted with acrylic paints is completed!

Another goal, another dream of being a better artist. You have to keep believing you can accomplish any goal you set out to do!

 After much research, this was the art I felt spoke to my heart. I love the violin and it had a real meaning to me. I once worked at an elementary school and took violin lessons along with the students. I wasn’t very good even with private lessons. I wish I could be as good as Winslow Davis as he played at Bridgestreet Town Center, Huntsville, Alabama.

Here is my inspiration from the art I found on Light In the Box.

I would love to hear from all of you. Believing in yourself is the ultimate of loving yourself before you can love others. God has blessed me and I like to share my blessings with you!

Please leave comments and let me know how my Inspiration Art compares to the original inspiration.

Wonderful having you on my blog!😍

In case you missed the post, Inspiration, I want to update you on my progress. This is the first of several to inspire you to set goals and start a project to inspire your thought process. In this  article, my Inspiration Project, the whimsical wall art.

A quick summary of the last article- I’m inspired to paint a colorful arrangement of canvas for my living room wall. I found just what I was looking for on Lightinthebox . The set of canvas are colorful with a whimsical touch. I started researching the items needed to complete the project and thought I would share it with you. I will update my progress as I go along. It will be mind-boggling at first but I’ve set my goal. I feel assured I can achieve it!


Well, I’m on my way to being half way complete. I set my goal and bought my canvas, paints, and brushes and sketched my work.

STEPS TO PREPARE CANVAS

  • I gave the canvas an all over coat of light yellow acrylic paint. The canvas has gesso when purchased but I wanted to give more depth to the canvas.
  • I started with the lighter color, white and moved onto the darker paint adding variations of each paint color on top of the main color.
  • I painted smaller details and added shadow effects around the base and sides of the canvas.
  • I penciled in a light drawing of the items in the painting with various colors of green, aqua, orange, darker yellow and beige,
  • Several coats of paint later, I outlined the violin and surrounding items.

The center canvas is now complete!
