My Graphic DIY & first Give Away!

Last week I posted about black and white graphic/abstract art. You can see the post here.  I mentioned  I purchased a piece for my own home which I am waiting to get framed. Framing is expensive ladies! While waiting to bite the bullet and dish out the cash for a frame the size I need, I decided to create my own abstract piece. I wanted to add a smaller piece to my kitchen gallery wall which is a work in progress. With just a ten dollar bill and endless ideas I created this little guy.

My inexpensive supplies...

* Artist's canvas (2) pack of 8" by 10." price -$4.59
* Liquitex acrylic paint tube. price - 2.99
* Paint brush - already owned.

And this is where this little guy now lives.

I now own an original!

This is where you come in. The canvas I used came in a two pack and I only needed one. I thought I would paint another piece and give it away to one of you! Now I won't be offended if you don't want it. The last time I painted I was in kindergarten, but if you do, just leave a comment on where you would put the piece and I will choose one of you. Then you will have an original piece of art as well heeheee.



  1. I love it! I think is looks fabulous in your kitchen! Your so creative!

  2. Who wouldn't want an original from Heather after seeing the one you just created?!!! Looks good!

  3. I think it's great, and I'm digging the artwork that its combined with! Great work, Heather!

  4. I love it! I would put it in my hallway

  5. If it is going to look anything like your original piece, I want, I want! If I had your fantastic piece I would put it in my kitchen! m.

  6. Um, I would love an original by Ms. Heather herself! Good for you for keeping the price low! It has such amazing lines, Lady! And it's going to really make your pretty black chandelier shine too.

    Wait, does this mean that the wall is done now? It looks like you have pictures hung across the middle of the nook, which was bare before, right?

  7. I love it! I hope I am not to late for the drawing! There are so many places I could put it! I would love some art in my family room or even my bedroom;) I love your original and who ever gets it is a lucky winner!

  8. You have no idea how much I would LOVE to win this! Your first painting is amazing!
