Painting furniture


Hi Everyone, it has been a long time since I have posted! I have been extremely busy with the new gallery and I suppose, a little lax about anything but painting!! I am doing furniture besides my paintings, and am painting on leaves, rocks and all kinds of things! It is too much fun!  Above is a modern chair done with chalk paint and I make 2 pillows that can be used with it or in the room with it. The zebra pillow top is painted with fabric paint. The pillows I paint are selling fast!
This is a shelf and I am in the process of painting a piece sort of like a small buffet that this will sit on top.  It has three drawers, so I am trying to decide whether to paint them the reddish color and add tropical leaves....I probably will as it will certainly take it to an arty level and that is what I like doing.  Hope you enjoy seeing a bit of my new things. I would post more, but am having trouble with my computer right now. I am so lucky to have done this much. I wish I knew a little more about electronics, but that really isn't my field. Every so often I decide to never get on the computer again. Then I cool off and decide that maybe I can do it, so I just jump in not knowing what in the world I am doing.  Of course, none of you are like that I am sure.  Hope to have some thoughts and comments on this!!

  1. Hello Egretta, looks like you have been very busy. Your gallery must be doing very well. If you use a Mac, I might be able to help. A PC. Not a clue. Nice to see that you are busy, healthy, and happy.

  2. Your painted furniture is fab and I'm sure it will sell quickly. The black and white pieces are likely to appeal as lots of people decorate with those colors (however I'm not one of them). I prefer your flower cushions you posted previously.

    What fun it looks to create lots of interesting pieces!
