A lotsa letter Art aka wow! Actual art!

I’m the past 3 weeks, I haven’t done much art.

The art I have done is letter art, a very easy and inexpensive way to make some random ugly clearance item, yard sale find, or thrift store tackiness beautiful.

This was one I did for a friend prior to leaving Raleigh.

I was honestly about half happy with it. In retrospect, I think I should have used bolder colors, but she loved it so..that’s all that matters.






If this is a repost forgive me, as my brain, it’s busy. Very very busy. As is life in general. Anyway!




The picture was from a yard sale. I got two identical ones for a dollar, originally from Home Goods for $16.99 each. Ha ha!

I made it, it was perfect to me, then B went and tossed a car.


There went the glass! Oh well. He didnt get hurt, and after I coated it with acrylic several times the glass would’ve been overkill, I think.


That one was also done prior to leaving Raleigh. Sadly, I left the other print at my old house, which may or may not be in a storage shed, but that’s ok.

This one I did recently. While driving halfway around the world, I happened upon a Re-store, which is Habitat for Humanity, and they often have cool bricabrac stuff, and the print was 25 cents on canvas, I think it’s 8 x 10 ish.


That’s the only before photo I have. It was the 3rd time I lettered it. I did several lyrics, first one took too much space, the second, I just didn’t feel it fit the picture, and this was just perfect.

Because of the quote, I thought the red flower should really stand out, so I didn’t do paint like I usually do. I used white plastic primer spray paint. It’s for me, so if it lasts, awesome, if not, eh.

It’s mostly a reminder that I am done with love. And I don’t mean that in a woe-is-me way, I mean it as fact.

The sky is blue, the grass is green, and I am done with the love crap.



That’s a horrible photograph, but B is sleeping, and I’m not turning on a light just so I have a better picture. You get the jest of what it is.
