drag me to jail....

i think i may have broken a law, but i did it anyway. i have an excuse. really i do.

over a year ago i saw this painting. it from an esty shop called jmj studio (link).
 i love the simplicity, the (super long) length and the colors... so perfect for my front hallway

i really, really wanted the painting (actually it's 3 separate canvases), but it was out of my price range. so i waited. unfortunately i waited to long, because the esty shop is closed. no paintings for me!

as i may have mentioned before, i have no patience. so instead of waiting for the etsy shop to open... i painted them myself. seeing as i have a fine arts degree, i figured it wouldn't be to difficult. mine is similar, but different. but i owe all the inspiration and technique to jmj studio.

** please note – these are horrible photos, the hallway is narrow an i couldn't get a good shot :)** 

 it's the same, but different. i added some contrast and shadow, but it's the same concept

so there it is. if you don't hear from me in the next few days,  the copyright police may have dragged me to jail!

but really... jmj studios does fantastic work. cross your fingers they open back up, cuz you'll love their shop!
