Pink Flamingo Love

Lately I’ve had a bit of an obsession with pink flamingos and now that summer is on its way they’re starting to make an appearance as lawn ornaments and on clothing. However, I was really on the search for a large watercolor painting of a flamingo for the bedroom like the one in my mood board:

Isn’t it beautiful??? I thought it deserved something a little nicer than just plain canvas, so I used some of my leftover hobby wood to make a frame for it.

I then glued the edges together and put a nail into each side of the frame to secure it.

I absolutely love it and I learned a lot from watching her make it. I did, however, fill in the black on the eye…I’m not sure if that counts as artistic ability though. :)
