DIY Cubism

As you can tell, lately, I've been on a MASSIVE Apartment Therapy kick. Sorry for all the re-posts, those of you who are faithful AT readers, but I just can't help myself!

This canvas is covered in paint chips to make up Marilyn Monroe's famous visage.

This Abe Lincoln piece is a canvas with painted squares of varying colors of grey.

"The Lincoln portrait was done by pixelating a photo and boiling it down to 9 shades of gray (both done in Photoshop). I built the canvas, gridded it off in 2 inch squares, and mixed the different shades of paint. At that point it basically became a paint by number
