I am on high speed right now with my work. My imagination is on over drive. This always happens when I have a show on the horizon. I wish I could stay this motivated all year!
I got it in my head to re-paint a table that I had…..like I need something else to do!
This table was painted for a special order, I packed it up and shipped it to a show where the customers were supposed to pick it up and pay me for it….well they changed their mind! Lesson learned….get your money up front!
The table looked similar to this one, but not exactly:
After I attacked it with the sander and some primer this morning it looks like this:
I have a birdie design in my head……we’ll see what happens after lunch!
At the same time I am also painting another chair for the auction, “Take a Seat for Conservation”. This one is going to be pretty funky….with a mermaid….but not all painted…..can you guess what I have in mind?
The pattern is by Jennifer from Jangles.
I used the little houses from my fabric fritters for this one. Been wanting to make some of these since before Christmas and finally did it!
Okay….going to grab lunch and get back to painting!
Have a great weekend!
I have been pretty stressed and busy preparing for my upcoming art show next weekend, which means I have needed some comfort food, and boy did I ever find it!
Vegan Eggnog Cheesecake!!!!! This was so amazing!!!
I found the recipe at the Fat Free Vegan website
. Go and check out this recipe and others on the site. There are lots of amazing recipes!
This beauty sliced up better than any non-vegan cheesecake I have ever made in the past and you could not tell the difference. I am now inspired to try out different vegan cheesecake flavors also!
One of my latest creations for the upcoming show was a bar stool that I painted for an auction that will be held at the show called, “Take a Seat for Conservation”
There will be almost 30 chairs and bar stools, painted by artists, up for auction.
I am looking forward to seeing all the chairs and stools all together…..what a pretty sight that will be!
The art show is a show called, “Art for the Parks”. It is put on by the Bahamas National Trust
and is January 28th, 29th and 30th at the Abaco Beach Resort in Marsh Harbour.
If you are in the area I hope to see you at the show. There will be so much more there than art……crafts for children to do, a mural painting area, chalk art contest, an awesome food court, the art booths and much more!
I told you a few posts ago that I am feverishly working towards an art show which is in less than two weeks now!! The show is called “Art for the Parks”, and takes place January 28th, 29th and 30th.
Over the next week I want to show you a sampling of the finished products that I will be selling at that show.
I am still mad about owls and now that has grown into other birdy designs as well.
Couple this with my love of pillows and this is what happens……
And the ideas are overflowing from my head! There are some mermaids pillows in the mix as well……I could never forget about my mermaids!
At this show there will be a silent auction called “Take a Seat for Conservation”. Each artist entered in the show is asked to paint a chair or a bar stool and these will be auctioned off during the weekend of the show.
Along with sewing and making jewelry I have been trying to finish my bar stool, which I hope to show you very, very soon.
So keep checking with me for more sneak peeks of jewelry, bar stools, chairs, and what ever other creative items are born 🙂
