Rainy Day Art Updates


One of my favorite projects has been creating these canvases.

If you follow me on Instagram you might recognize these gold and black canvases. Each time I snap a photo like this one, I always receive tons of compliments on the pieces. It’s hard to believe I created these as a DIY project years ago and never shared them here before.

The art has lived in Cleveland, New York City, Santa Monica, and now Los Angeles. I haven’t hung them up in the new apartment yet because I was unsure about where they should go. As I inspected the horses closely, I noticed some scratches and blemishes from the last move. It was time for a fresh paint and to get these babies back up on the wall.

It doesn’t rain in southern California too often – but when it did last week I was inspired to stay in, get cozy and update my art.

I moved a lot of my mirrors and artwork in the car, naturally I didn’t pack it that well since I wasn’t going far and one of the backs of my mirrors scratched the surface pretty bad.

Luckily I still had the same paint I originally painted these with. A little gold here, a little black there. All better.

I stayed cozy with my boot cozies from Boottique .  What is it about the rain that is so relaxing? I’m also thinking about creating a couple more of these canvases to add to my collection (with a full DIY tutorial of course).

Do you have any DIY horse art you love?
