Painting Again

 
As you know, I love to paint.  I have painted forever.  I started out doing tole painting - which was with oils, then moved to acrylic and watercolors.  I taught tole, acrylic and watercolor for many years and loved to watch students' paintings turn into something they were so proud of.
 
This piece (forgive the bad photo, these were taken with my old camera and probably a flash) was the top of a side table that had bookshelves below it.
 
 
This was a fun chair to paint.  It is a really pretty aqua color with the quote and birdcage painted onto the back and seat.  I used old book pages and cut out the leaves and the border at the bottom of the seat.
 
 
The quote says "I don't sing because I'm happy, I'm happy because I sing".
 
 
This was also a side table that I painted the design on the top.  And yes, I did paint all of the writing.  It was a combination of several things I had seen.
 
Painting furniture just has to have detail on it for me.  I very seldom do something just a plain color.  I know that sometimes you don't need lots of detail, but I dearly love very detailed painting.
 
Enjoy!
 
Till next time, Judy

I wish I could paint half as good as you do! Well, that wouldn't even be accurate, as I can't paint at all. Guess I'll stick to decoupage...

Wow! Very Nice! I would love to be able to paint like that. I would never be able to paint the writing like that - I don't even do well painting the walls in a room. :/
Looks like in your last post, you and your sister had a nice shopping trip.
Thanks for stopping by and nice comment on the necklace.
