Faux Van Gogh

In a recent magazine, there was a picture of a wall with a lot of paintings on it of all different sizes. They looked amazing, and it turns out they were paint by number! I decided I would like to try a few of those and see how they turn out. Chris thinks I am a huge nerd, but I asked him, "Is paint by numbering lame, or ironically cool?" Everything makes a comeback, why not this?

I attempted my first portrait. Horses from Wal Mart. I figured, it only cost $5, so what could it hurt. Well, in my haste to get up and answer the phone, I knocked all of the paints onto the picture, ruining it. Must be more careful next time, but it was fun while it lasted. This picture is one I will try next. I will update on the various stages and whether or not it is a cool as I think.
