I hung this new piece in my living room, thinking of it as unfinished. Maybe I shouldn't have done that. My husband doesn't want me to alter it now. He likes it!
After three years of living with our home's former owners' mauve carpeting and floral wallpaper, we have finally removed all of that and added our own taste. There's more to be done, but I couldn't resist hanging art on the walls as soon as I could. I didn't think my family would like this large contemporary canvas, but I have been surprised by everyone, including my mother who loved the former decor and my husband, who doesn't want me to change a thing about it. This large (30 x 40") canvas sat unfinished in my studio for close to a year covered with texture and shades of turquoise acrylics. Once I determined the colors for my living areas, most of that was covered up. I used one of the living room and dining room colors of interior latex paint, and then dripped it a la Pollack to integrate the colored sections with the main color. I will probably do a little finessing to it, but I may have to do it in secret.
