I love to go to garage sales, flea markets and resale stores like Goodwill and St. Vincent. I’m always looking for good deals and unusual finds. When I find something awesome my husband usually asks “but where will you put it?” That isn’t always an easy question to answer. If truth be told I sometimes ask myself that question but I won’t admit that.
As an artist I’m always looking for good picture frames. Sometimes the frame and picture is so perfect that I buy it with the intention of painting over the picture. It’s the perfect example of recycling. So this last picture/frame combination that I bought I had an excellent idea for a painting.
Turned out this was no canvas board I was painting on. Holy cow was this hard to paint on!! The paint wouldn’t move and seemed to be absorb to quickly into the surface. Fortunately I was determined.
I showed my husband my finished product. He loved it. I told him I know exactly where this painting needs to go. I know the space that needs a splash of color. We need this in our dining room!!!
