    I've wanted to do this for a while and finally decided to go out and buy the materials yesterday.

    I wanted to make and hang some art in my living room because there wasn't actually anything on the walls.

    I went to a Michaels arts and crafts store and picked up four 16x20" canvases, 5 small bottles of acrylic paint and some mixing dishes. The total only came to $27 or something... so I definitely can't complain about price!

    I wanted to make each canvas have a certain color theme, so i decided to go with a blue, green, red and yellow one.

    I think they turned out pretty well for about 2 hours of random painting and $27 in supplies :dunno:

    looks cool.

    the red one needs some other kinda color on it though to somewhat match the other.

    Yeah. there's actually some orange in it that goes with the yellow one but it didn't really come through in the photos.

    I think that's a really cool idea. I want to have some canvas prints done by jared_IRL for my place. Just have to pick out the right photos and possibly do some editing.
