Paint an Abstract Water Lily Painting
I have an unsightly electrical panel in my kitchen. But, luckily I found a way to cover it using an Abstract Water Lily Painting.
Best of all, I recycled an old canvas and used paints I had to create an abstract painting that goes with the colors in my kitchen. Want to make your own? I created a video tutorial so you can paint along!

Loved watching you ‘build’ this painting. It takes patience to do this, which is probably why I don’t paint much. :o) I am not usually an abstract art fan, but I sure do like yours. Nice!
