Painting your own artwork can seem a little daunting, especially for those of us who are less than gifted with a paintbrush. So thank goodness for people like Maria from Our Lake Life who show how simple it really can be to create your own piece of art. Maria created this pointillism style painting using the eraser end of a new pencil. The layers of dots form the image of the tree in the falling snow. This simple technique could easily be used to paint many different scenes like vibrant autumn leaves or a festive Christmas tree.
Maria was inspired by the Snowbirds & Blossoms Hand-Painted Canvas from Ballard Designs.

Thank you so much for sharing this idea! I think even I could do art like this!
