I Accidentally Made 1980s Hotel Artwork

I was pretty proud of the pair of paintings I made for our dining room recently, so I thought our bedroom could use a work of art as well.

I gotta have my Bob Ross when I paint.


Did I mention that this was during Painting Apocalypse 2016 during which we moved all of our belongings into the basement of our house so we could have the house professionally painted and so we also lived in the basement with all three pets for, like, three weeks? It was crazy times.


Weird projects like this kept me sane.



Well, sane-ish. Here's the finished painting.


I have to admit it's not one of my favorites. I couldn't quite put my finger on it until I showed it to Eddy who said, "Whoa. That looks like it's from the 80s." To which I replied, "Yeah, but from an 80s hotel room." So there you go. I made 80s hotel art.

It does look nice in our bedroom for now.


And if there's anything I've learned from painting artwork for our house it's that if you don't like something you can just paint over it. Maybe someday. For now, we'll just enjoy the new 80s vibe our bedroom has.
