My weekend project....this will take me a few weekends to complete! I am NOT an artist!  I visited a Paint Studio in Mobile, Alabama to inspire me to paint this.  Visit Paint Party Studios for an evening of fun and creativity! 
Remember my sneak peak of the sketched canvas on Friday?

What do you think so far?
