I don’t know what I was thinking.
“I can whip these out in a couple of hours, they are so small”
These are 4 x 4 inches. I don’t have a result in mind, not trying for anything in particular, other than “pretty”. I am working on a small series to submit for publication. I’ll tell you all about that tomorrow, when I actually have something to show.
The sun was already down, so horrible lighting, but still a peek, and proof that I am painting.
Just building layers, texture, pattern. Years ago I did faux finishing, well I still do at times but not that ghastly marble that was all the rage. Might use some of those tricks here though.
I am known among my family and friends, for having this weird gift. They can bring me any piece of furniture, and I can tell them exactly what they need to do to match it. Colors, technique, products, tools. Say they found an expensive night stand, and they want to DIY it on the cheap. In fact this month I will be painting a bathroom cabinet to match a shabby chic piece. I’ll show you when it is done!
I don’t feel right posting this to Leslie‘s blog, I think I will wait and post the finished pieces.
Happy creating everybody!
