ART !


I'll be up to my elbows in paint.....all week long! There will be several projects and 'I will take pictures! I will take pictures! I will. take pictures!!!..' and post asap. Here are a couple of things I've just finished and will be delivering tomorrow. This is a cute little chest with a matching hutch. When I picked it up a few weeks ago it was stained pine ( actually the back of the piece has the word Birch stamped on it). Anyway, the owners of this chest wanted me to give it a makeover. To go from 'plain jane' to rustic country french.
I can hardly wait to see their faces! It looks completely different. I know they're going to love it! This little painting was comissioned by a friend for her sister. This scripture, Joshua 24:13, has always been a favorite. I really enjoyed painting the grape vines. Here is one of several sample boards I painted and glazed over a hand troweled texture, for an up coming job. And last but not least, I just have to show you two really cool mid-century modern Russell Wright, folding metal chairs by Samson. Such great patina!
After this busy week, I'll look forward to sitting in one and putting my feet up in the other!
