My Masterpiece

I had some free time over the weekend being snowed in and all, so I took advantage of it.
I bought a gilded frame at an antique shop for $25 last fall.  It just needed someone to love it, rescue it, and nurse it back to health.
It only took me 6 months, but I eventually did just that with a little rub n buff.
Your welcome, Frame.

But it was missing something. Oh yes, some artwork.

Now some people buy bread, milk, and eggs in preparation for a nor'easter, I made sure I had art supplies on hand.
I had no idea what I was going to paint on the canvas but I knew I wanted it to be turquoise. I think turquoise and gold look very pretty together.
In the end, I didn't paint anything at all. I kind of just mixed the paint and spread it all around on the canvas. I added some black streaks for good measure. I decided I liked it so I left it alone. Then I signed it to make it look like someone who knew what they were doing painted it.

I know. I'm not fooling anyone.
I hung it on the wall in a bare and blah spot in our bedroom. 

I call it "Nemo".
