Pastoral Furniture

I have a dear friend who is wanting to paint a pastoral scene on a headboard with me. Here are some things I have painted in the past that have the basic, or similar, idea...


I cant wait to see what she comes up with. Joanna is amazingly creative and we will have a blast working on a few pieces together.
Till later.....
Hugs and prayers!

Earlier Pieces


WannaBes

I love Wanna-Be-Furniture! We find some alongside the road, some at garage sales, and some... just seem to turn up! Our house is full of furniture finds and decor that have been waiting for fresh coats of paint, repair or just that final artistic stroke.... so I am going to see about scanning old photos into my computer so that I can upload them... and also take pics of the pieces waiting around.
Here are a few to start with....
Oh fun oh fun! The hutch piece in back was FREE. Hubby picked out the brown table and I picked out the cream table.... diff garage sales. We are perfecting the garage sale "driveby" & can "scan & select" from the road. Or so we think.  Well, let's see what happens to these pieces...... More later.
Hugs and prayers!

New Portrait

Well it took long enough :) I completed this 8x10 canvas, in oils. This young lady is so beautiful and was a joy to paint.
I also will be posting some of my previously painted art pieces, like furniture, murals and such. We have a house full of unfinished "wannabe" pieces that we may upload as well.... kind of Before-and-After shots.
Until then, blessings in Jesus' holy name.
