#034 SUN BUNNY

This is an E-Pattern, not a finished product. This is a downloadable pattern that upon completion of the sale will be emailed to you and then you download it to your computer to paint at your leisure.

This piece can be placed on any surface of your choice. I painted mine on an old board that was lying around in my studio. Someone had suggested this would make a great canvas floor cloth, perhaps used as a welcome sign with the "Welcome" under the bunny. The check border would be optional. It will be yours to do with as you so choose. This is an original design, actually one of my favorites so far. I hope you enjoy painting it as much as I enjoyed designing it!

The pattern includes a line drawing, written instructions with paint list and supply list as well as photographs of the progression of the painting with some close ups.

If you would like a hard copy of the pattern, please email me at thesunflowercupboard@gmail.com

Enjoy, enjoy and thanks for looking!

#032 SUMMER DELIGHT

Originally designed E-PATTERN. This was designed as I was yearning for warmer weather. This winter has been difficult for many areas and my mind kept going to memories of summer days filled with fun, watermelon and sunflowers. The black cat was added just because he was so cute! Just painting this made me feel warmer. I can't guarantee that it will make you feel warmer but it just might put a smile on your face.

This is an E-Pattern, not a finished product. Each pattern includes written instructions with paint and materials list, photographs of the different stages of painting, and a line drawing.  Once the sale is completed, an email will be sent to you for you to download and then the pattern will be there at your leisure!

This is an original design of what I would picture as a sampling of some primitive designs. Done in pleasing country colors that would coordinate and compliment many different styles. I like to think of my style as a mix of primitive, folk art, and decorative/tole painting. I love doing detail work and can't seem to stop putting in a few little extra touches. It is a detailed piece but not necessarily a difficult piece to paint.  I hope this is something that you would like to paint!

FORGET ME NOTS AND SUNFLOWERS

#051 FORGET ME NOTS AND SUNFLOWERS

Memories of spring and summer are always full of forget-me-nots and sunflowers.  I found a cute little paper mache suitcase that fit the design I had in mind and I even added a sunflower inside the suitcase for whimsy.  Everywhere I have had a garden I have had sunflowers and naturally this little red-headed gardener has her sunflower patch as well. 

The forget-me-nots are a wonderful memory I have of my sweet sister-in-love, Maureen.  I sent her a bunch of seeds when I was living in Maine and she returned the favor and sent me some of her seeds from Washington State to me in Minnesota.  I love an area carpeted with the lovely blue blossoms they produce.  These will be first seeds I sow this spring.

This was a fun piece to design and paint.  Of course, it can be painted on any surface you choose in case you cannot find a paper mache suitcase.

This is an e-pattern and not a finished product.  Upon completion of the sale, you will receive notice that the pattern is ready to be downloaded to your computer at a time that is best for you.

RUSTIC SUNFLOWER PLAQUE

I experimented with something new, a rustic wooden sunflower!  I had some extra "ship lap" slabs and being that I love painting sunflowers, I gave it a try. I really liked the way it turned out.  I really liked the wood grain stripe off center of the flower.  There would be so many great places to display a bold sunflower - study, living room, powder room, kitchen, porch and the list goes on!

Measurements:  10 3/4 inches x 7 1/4 inches.

Price:  $15.00 with $7.50 shipping included (total $22.50)

Hand painted, original design, one-of-a-kind paper mache pumpkin.  This pumpkin brings back some of the wonders of Autumn - pumpkins, sunflower, crisp fall days, apple picking, pumpkin fields, fields of sunflowers and yes, pumpkin spice coffe (one of my favorites)!  

The pumpkin is made of paper mache and has been sealed and is ready for display.  There are three houses displayed with lots of sunflowers and a glorious flag.

One of many things I like about this design is that it more than suitable decorating wise to display from late summer through November - not just specific to Halloween!

TREE TRIMMIN' THYME PLAQUE

Terrye French, one of the greatest primitive artists, formed a group called Painting with Friends.  Shortly before she passed, I was allowed to join this illustrious group.  As a member of this group, I was given one of Terrye's rough sketches and asked to "flesh it out" and add to her fabulous design.  I added some components to make it mine and used the colors I envisioned with the piece.  This is the original sample and is truly a one-of-a-kind.

Measurements:  Approximately 11 3/4 inches long by 7 1/2 inches tall.

The piece is hung by a jute cord (attached).

The price includes Priority Mail shipping in the USA
