    any ideas? i'm not that good at painting so it needs to be simple... but i would also like it to look good enough that ppl other than my parents will like it

    so far:
    the ocean (lots of blues/swirls)
    abstract stuff (black background with specs of paint throughout)
    fireworks

    what about a light house? you could make it as simple, or complex as you like

    or a oldschool wooden windmill, maybe something in an open field?

    knowing a little something about your parents would help. :o paint something they like. my mom really wouldn't want an abstract picture, as she doesn't like that type of art, but i would try to paint a picture of one of the hot rods her and my dad built, the house they built, or the farm. she also has painted for years, so i probably wouldn't try to paint her something since it wouldn't be half as good as her paintings that are hanging up in her house. :mamoru:
