Painting

Nobody is expecting Picasso to be living next door, but putting paint to canvas is a fun way to create artwork to use at home or to share with friends. Because art is truly in the eye of the beholder, creating a finished product can mean anything from splattering paints across a canvas for an abstract landscape to carefully attending to the minute details of a floral still life. Many artists create their paintings from photographs, so take a picture of a favorite scene and then attempt to recreate it later at home.
