Yes We Canvas!

Deciding on a new piece of art can be intimidating, yes, but what if I told you that you had the option to pick out EXACTLY what you wanted.  You could tailor your art to fit exactly your needs.  We’re talking size, shape, color, patterns… Forget about spending countless hours, days, months hunting for one specific piece, not to mention you wouldn’t have to break the bank to get this art.  Sounds like a dream come true if you ask me!

Well with the new year comes new opportunity, so why not start off 2010 by hanging a one-of-a-kind “(YOUR NAME HERE)” art work on your wall that actually looks pretty spectacular!  All you will need are plain white canvases (it’s up to you how many), Sharpie markers and a bit of creativity and imagination to create art that will update any space!

An option to make this DIY project a bit easier for those who may be intimidated – just do what I did - hunt around online and search for patterns that you like and can recreate.  I found my pattern online and used an assortment of Sharpie permanent markers in Red, Navy Blue, Green and Yellow to draw on plain white, hard wood canvases (see pics below) to make my Sharpie wall art.  The great part about this is that your options are endless – you can choose to make one giant piece, several small canvases, or collect an assortment of sizes.  With so many different Sharpie colors to choose from, when it comes to color and design the choice is completely yours!

*Another great thing about canvas art is how free your are to arrange the pieces until you figure out what works best for you.  Have fun with it!

  1. Do you teach or instruct classes? I am opening a gallery/studio soon in New Haven, IN. and am looking for all kinds of unique art ideas. I would love to learn more!!!

  2. The canvas looked great. I wonder how did you come up with this design. I was thinking it must be time consuming to create one canvas. i wonder if there is a gadget to come up with these kind of designs. I checked out the site and I notice cool-looking shoes, which has great sharpie markers highlights.

  3. I’m planing on having a big canvas as a guest book for my wedding… but I was hesitating between markers and oil-paint sharpies! What do you guys think? I want it to last forever :)
