Farmers Market Canvas

home projects 041c

Yesterday I showed off the Flea Market Canvas I created for my living room, based off this beautiful artwork by Mandy Lynne.

You didn’t think I could stop with just one, did you?

Well, I was happy enough with the Flea Market canvas, so I started sketching for the next one…

Ever drawn a bicycle?  Me neither.

My style is definitely not as “refined” as the original!  I wish the colors translated better to the computer screen…the border and the lettering are actually a brick red color, and the background is a pale green.  And again…flowers are not my strong suit!

So here’s the set…the original, gorgeous, Mandy Lynne’s:

And the debut artwork of the amateurish Red Hen:

Am I happy?  I think so!

These are gorgeous! I couldn't tell which was the original and which was yours until you spelled it out. Beautiful job. You have quite the mad talent there. I would definitely put these in my home. Love them!
