I will be posting the rest of our family room reveal this evening, but wanted to share with you our fun new artwork. I used to have a collection of empty frames behind the couch, but decided I wanted something to add more of a splash of color since the tons in the room are more modern and muted. I decided to let the kids go to town, and asked them if they would want to paint self portraits. They both love to paint, so it was a fun treat and a great way to spend time together on Emmy’s birthday. I went to Michael’s and bought 2 22″ x 28″ canvases, and I selected a large bottle of DecoArt Americana Primary Blue paint. I told the kids they could each select two colors as well. Sawyer chose a red and orange, and Emmy chose a pink and purple. I also added a yellow to the mix to help unify the pictures. When we got home, I painted the blank canvases blue and let that dry.
Once that was dry, I invited the kids to go to town!
There they are hanging on the wall! Sawyer gave himself a sword, and Emmy was excited and said she was painting herself being 4. She was so excited!
