MERMAID and other art

I took a couple of photos of the desk and I really miss Eli, the wonderful photographer I have been using. I only have a few weeks before I hit the AT so there is no money for photos. That’s all the apology anyone gets, I’m afraid. Go to Common Ground to see the real thing. It’s one of a kind. When I get back, I am anxious to do so much more art!

The mermaid is even prettier in person!

This teapot belonged to my client’s mother. Whe she passed away, my client asked me  to make it into an art piece for her sister. She is very happy-and so am I.

This chair is a tiny version of the oak chairs we had in school-in the old days. This design features the alphabet and lots of color!

more new work

I’m working on something called upcycling…I think. I’m finding old, worn, chipped, ugly pieces of furniture and household items and making them into art pieces. To me, everything’s a canvas. I posted pictures of the duck and now I’d like to show off a wastebasket, a teapot and another stool.

I’m busy on my days off prepping an odd chair, a desk, 2 sewing machine cabinets (minus the sewing machines), a set of chairs, another stool and a couple of wooden boxes that used to hold shoes. Before Winter sets in and it’s too cold to do this kind of messy work outside I hope to have these pieces finished and ready for drawing. My TRUE LOVE. That I can do inside. I’d love to have them completed in time to sell during the Christmas season. You’ll see them here first, of course.

I love making old ugly things into ART. Don’t you?
