not quite a silhouette

I was at a rummage sale a month ago and found several canvas paintings for a steal... I think I paid .50 cents a piece. I had no idea what to do with them but I knew I wanted to do something creative for the guest room.  Lately there have been a whole slew of people doing chalk boards and I love chalk boards but ever since I watched the movie "Jaws" and those of you who were brave enough to watch it know what scene I'm referring to.  I just can't bring myself to have one in my home.   How about painting canvas black or charcoal which is what I used and chalking something onto them?

you can see the resemblance (somewhat...)

and we all really like the end result!
