Arty smarty

Dollar Store Crafts recently featured my Dollar Store Abstract Expressionism project.

Heather, the queen of Dollar Store Crafts, earlier made this Mark Rothko look alike pictured above, which is a great project for adding a little color to your interior. Get the full how-to at DSC.

Momma of Two at My Search Within did her own black and white abstract expressionist work inspired by mine. There's a lot of energy in that painting, don't you think?

Have you ever DIY'd your art?


  1. Inspirational Bromeliad! I'll think of this whenever I see overpriced mass market abstracts in the shops, and one day wield my own brush.

    I've promised myself that I will DIY a piece of art after the thanksgiving craziness. Really liking the orange art...

    Who can resist an abstract? The orange one look really good. I keep promising myself that I'm going to do a few.

    I used to paint quite a bit (not well but enthusiastically).Now, if I paint anything it's usually for decorative purposes and I consider non-artistically motivated paintings more decor than art. But yeah, love the idea of this.
