Word of the Day

I spent most of the day today finishing up my triptych piece for above my bed.  (Yep, triptych is a word.  It means three panels that form one image.... How's that for a word of the day?)  It's different from some of the things I normally do, but I really did enjoy it.  I'm thinking creating similar paintings more often. 

I used the design on my bedspread as inspiration, and this is what I came up with.

(For some reason, the shiny blue on my bedspread does NOT like to be photographed.  It keeps coming out as a silvery blue.  It's actually the same shade as the painting, just shiny.  )

Now that you've read that little disclaimer, here's a few shots of the finished product.

I'm really super happy with the way it turned out.  I feel like I finally have a "put together" bedroom!
Seriously... This was it before. (I'm actually embarrassed to show it.)

Coming from that, I say this is a drastic improvement.
What do you think?

If you like what you see, and you may be interested in collaborating for a custom project to match your decor, e-mail me at Lindsay.Edwards (at) Live (dot) com  or contact me through my Etsy shop.  I'd LOVE to do a special project just for you!
