Light up the night skies

I joined the Light It Up Swap and Iโ€™m not gonna lie, I struggled for a bit. But then I had a great idea (not this item) but then I had another great idea and decided to do something with my partners theme of deserts.

I decided to paint the desert at night and in order to get my canvas to shine, I poked holes through it and stuck the lights through the canvas. I hot glued them to keep them in place.

The painting is beautiful on its own, but it is next level with the glowing โ€œstarsโ€! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: It looks amazing in a dimly lit area and really evokes a calm night in the desert.

Thank you everyone!!! This painting was really fun to do. I tend to paint on a smaller scale but this was really fun to make.
