Picasso Moment

I had a Picasso moment when I was decorating my living room. I wanted to maintain a modern feel to room with the clean lines, opaque shades, and bold colors. I used a technique I saw on the TLC channel were you paint an abstract painting on 3 canvases then separate them when you mount them.

You too can be a cubist artist. All you need is 3 colors, 3 canvases and some masking tape. Block off areas by laying the tape in horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines. Take your 3 colors and choose where you want to place them. The key to make it look balanced is to avoid coloring 2 adjacent blocks the same color. If you feel like you can't help it, then just leave it blank! Let it dry and remove the tape and Viola!!! You are now a cubist!

The only thing I would have done different is I would have gotten bigger canvases from Pearl.
