and the Oscar goes to........Mixed Media Monday...It’s Not All Black and White



Hi Everyone...when I checked out this week's prompt on MMM I was pleasantly surprised....since I just got this inspirational photo of a black and white bathroom...which inspired my painting this weekend...I spent the whole day painting our master bathroom...and the colours fit the challenge perfectly.....I never thought I would ever paint the master bathroom black...but it turned out amazing.....and now it looks like I am at a posh hotel ...I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also am an Oscar fan...so I will be watching the awards tonight....so in lieu of the event....I decided to create my "It’s Not All Black and White" piece inspired around Oscar night....

Have a wonderful night!!!

Hugs
Diana

A bathroom with a fireplace and a large TV screen on the wall? Heaven.
Diana, your black and white (and red) Oscars are fabulous. What a thoroughly original and creative idea. Fantastic work.

Beautiful, Diana. (I hope you're pleased the Oscars went to Jeff Bridges and Sandra Bullock. They were my picks!) Your bathroom sounds really classy, by the way.

And there was me thinking that you'd posted a picture of your actual bathroom! Great choice of subject matter. I'm planning on finishing decorating my bathroom this week. I kind of did it the wrong way round - bought and displayed the soft furnishings first! Now I just need to get the paintbrushes out!

Love the piece! I was so tired staying up to watch the Oscars in its entirety, but I loved it. Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, Ben Stiller and (especially) Neil Patrick Harris made it a night to remember. And I was very happy with all the winners! Theresa

Deborah said...

What ever it is that you eat or drink, I need some. A new piece of art AND painted your bathroom!?!? I would never want to go back in time and be a younger age, HOWEVER, I would love to have some of that energy and drive! You are amazing. **blows kisses** Deb
