#050 GOOSE GIRLS

Spring has to be right around the corner, at least I hope so.  I designed this last winter and in the interim also made a video and figured I should release the e-pattern if nothing else than to scare the cold weather away.  What could be more peaceful than a trio of country girls walking their trio of geese to market?  Well, not ready to leave well enough alone, I had to add some frolicking sheep in the background.  It was a fun piece to design and to paint and I am hoping you have some fun with it also.  Would be so cute in a little girl's room or a "powder room" or anyplace you choose to place it.  

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.

#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.

#056 HOPPING DOWN THE BUNNY TRAIL

It is nice to know that winter will eventually be gone and that spring is coming! Of course an important part of spring is Easter and I love all things Easter – bunnies, chicks, Easter eggs, flowers, and all the glorious colors of the season. I did choose to add some eyelet lace to the piece but you should decorate it the way you would like – fill it with jelly beans, pastel M&Ms or nothing at all! Most of all, I hope you have a great time painting this!

FEATHERS AND EGGS TIN TRAY

I designed this piece as something that can be displayed during the Easter/Spring season but would not have to be limited to just this place in time.  The surface is tin that has been painted on bottom and inside with a luscious copper paint.  The side panel is painted with a tan paint and then speckled eggs and fine line feathers are added. The design is on both sides.  Once allowed to dry, another level of speckling was done with a dark brown.  The wooden handles have been left alone and should age beautifully. 

Measurements:  From handle to handle, the piece is approximately 15” long, 5 1/4” wide and 4” high from handle to the bottom.

Price for FEATHERS AND EGGS is $39.00 which includes priority shipping inside the USA.

WELCOME SPRING PLAQUE

I would guess that it is not to early to be thinking of Easter decorations.  I designed this piece with that in mind.  I utilized an old piece of pine barn wood, sealed it well and painted my design.  Rather than a “feather tree” I used a wood dowel tree sitting in a clay pot with “painted wooden cut outs” and an Easter banner at the bottom.  The bunny has blue button eyes and a nice blue bow.  The entire piece is bordered in a green frame with blue painted blanket stitches. 

There is a saw tooth hanger attached to the back for hanging.

Measurements:  15” tall, 7 1/4” wide and the wood is 3/4” thick. 

Price for Welcome Spring Is $37.00 which includes priority shipping inside the USA.

RUSTIC CARROTS PLAQUE

Trying something different, a rustic hand painted wooden plaque.  I really like painting carrots and wanted to see what they would look like on a piece of "ship lap" and this is the finished product.  I think this would be terrific in a kitchen setting or anywhere you wish to place it.  A sawtooth hanger has been attached to the back.

Measurements:  11 inches long by 7 1/4 inches wide.  

The price is $15.00 plus $7.50 for shipping for a total of $22.50.

VINTAGE FLOWER GIRL PINK

Hand painted mixed media piece.  There are many steps to creating this piece.  I started with chalky paint and then transferred an image provided by The Graphics Fairy and then superimposed hand painted tints, sponged background, roses and leaves.  This is finished with a transparent white bow/ribbon for hanging.  The roses are painted using a technique that I was personally taught by Ros Stallcup last year. 

I can picture this piece in any number of places - powder room, bedroom, garden room, living room - you are only limited by your imagination!

Measurements: 11" wide and 11 1/2" tall at the top of the dome.  

Pricing:  Shipping is included and will be shipped Priority Mail in the USA only.

A lovely white organza bow has been added to hang this piece.

WHITE HYDRANGEA PLANTER

I saw this planter at a local thrift shop and really liked the look of it. This is a piece that needed to be re-purposed as it has a lot of life left especially with a new “face”.  Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers and also one of my favorite flowers to paint.  I really pictured the creamy white hydrangeas for this especially with the gold of the planter.  The plantar is heavy duty plastic and has two keyholes on the back to secure it to a wall.  This would be wonderful for a silk flower arrangement or just a bunch of silk flowers.  After the piece was painted, I speckled the entire outside of the piece with gold and it added just a bit more to the design.  It has been sealed well but once again, would not scrub the design, clean gently please. 

Price for WHITE HYDRANGE PLANTER is $40.75 and shipping is included.  Ships to USA only.

Measurements:  15” long, 7” tall and 6 3/4" wide.

BEE GARDEN PLAQUE

Original design, one-of-a-kind, hand painted wooden plaque.  This mixed media piece (decorative painting and image transfering techniques) was designed with bees and flower gardens in mind.  The bee and wreath components are image transfers laboriously applied to painted wood and then the daisies were handpainted onto the wood.  Jardin (as you may know is the French word for garden - one of the few things I remember from high school French class.  I loved the way the two designs came together.  

Measurements:  11 inches by 7 3/4 inches.

A sawtooth hanger is attached on the back.

The price of this piece is $27.00 and shipping Priority Mail, is included.

GROW A BUNNY PLAQUE

This is a very "Easter" and Spring-related original design pattern. I wanted to use a lot of pastels but also use the dark background. It combined a bunny with one of my favorite pastimes, gardening. I loved the expression on the bunny's face and hope you do too. 

This was inspired by finding a bunny nest in my garden - I saw some fluffy stuff on the surface and carefully "dug down" and found a nest of baby bunnies!

A sawtooth hanger is attached to the back.

The price is $19 and that includes Priority Mail shipping!

#059 NEW ENGLAND COASTAL VILLAGE SHELF

I lived in New England (Downeast Maine and Cape Cod) for over 24 years and fell in love with everything about the area – the architecture, the people, the scenery, the food, etc.  I found this piece of wood and just started designing.  I actually named the lobster shop after a wonderful lobsterman/friend!  The piece itself is a peg rack which actually adds to its usefulness and value. 

A wonderful friend, talented artist and wood work genius, Sheila Bergner-Landry, can provide the surface for this piece

Measurements:  Height (from tip of mast to bottom of peg section is 20 1/2” tall and 16” wide (approximate measurements).
