More Painted Furniture

Hi Everyone, here it is almost Fall and I am painting palm trees and the ocean on a chest of drawers! But I am in Florida, so this is the kind of furniture enjoyed year around here. I just finished this piece and put it in my gallery.

This piece is the bottom I painted to go with that shelf with the parrot on it that I posted last time. However, I didn't like the shelf on top of this, as they weren't the same size. So I think as coordinating pieces, the top shelf could be hung. They are both in my shop priced seperately.  Always in my photos, the colors are never exactly as they are in real life. This piece is a color called "Pear" by Martha Stewart.
 It went on beautifully and is a pretty greenish, almost a mint color, but true to a pear starting to ripen from green to yellow. I love it! The terra cotta color, I mixed myself and it is really pretty, too. Enlarge these for a better look.
Wish it were Fall here. In sunny Florida, it is hot and humid. For months our temperature has been in the 90s with heat index of over 100, so I have basically stayed in and painted all summer.  My garden has not liked the heat much, but does like the rain we have daily for an hour or so.  Tropical weather! I am ready for a respite!

  3. Your painted furniture must be very popular and selling well. Little wonder for it is beautiful and unique. It has been hot here, too, but fortunately we don't have the humidity that you do in Florida. Thank goodness for air conditioning, right?
