Sometimes we think the art we buy for our homes has to be expensive or museum-worthy, but it doesn’t. Homemade art is my favorite kind because it’s personal and meaningful. My middle daughter, Emily, came home last week for Spring break and spent a couple days creating a landscape painting on canvas using acrylic paints. It looked amazing when she finished it, and I told her I would gladly pay money for it! Right now it’s going to hang in her dorm room, but it could definitely hang anywhere.
Make It Personal
Whether you’re artistic or crafty or not, you can still make things for your home. Don’t let your fear of inexperience prevent you from trying something new! Experimenting with a new hobby is half the fun, and whatever you make will be appreciated because it’s homemade. I’ve always wanted to learn to watercolor, and have it on my list of things to try this year. Whatever you’re curious about, try it! Make a salon wall of all your attempts–that way you can see your progress as you improve. Don’t forget to sign and date everything you make so you’ll always remember when you did it.
Importance Of Art
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
