ROCKING LAMB

I found this charming, vintage, but really well used rocking lamb at a unique shop in my neighborhood and just had to have it to paint.  I pictured something primitive and red, white and blue.  It was someone’s treasured toy (or several someones’) and I felt it needed to be rejuvenated. 

I swirled the hair on the head and neck with thick swirls of paint to give it some texture.  I left the handle in the original state.  The back was painted in red and white stripes and antiqued.  The support pieces were painted a lovely shade of blue and I added tons of stars.  This area was also antiqued.  The runners were also painted blue with some stars and “Sweet Land of Liberty” to complete them.  The entire piece was distressed on the pressure areas and antiqued again. A large black dot was added for each eye and carefully outlined for definition. This has been varnished with a “soft touch varnish”. I personally love the way it turned out. 

For decorative purposes only.  This little lamb has been well-ridden in the past and it is time for a rest!

Measurements:  This is a large piece approximately measuring 21 inches tall, 32 inches long for the runners, 9 inches wide at the base and the body is 19 inches from tip of nose to tail area.

Price for ROCKING LAMB is $165.00, first class mail with insurance included inside the USA only.

#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).

#067 WINTERS EVE

starlit winter’s evening with a full moon shining down upon a quaint New England village with lots of snow and a stray whale cruising by…..the idea of this cooled me right down (was a very hot day).  One of the benefits of designing and painting for me is that I get to escape into my own little world. I don’t always know where I am going but the journey is always fun and rewarding.

BLACKBIRDS BEWARE PAINTED CAT

Halloween just isn't Halloween without a black cat!  This feline is totally hand-made...varnished and painted fabric which is then cut and sewn, decoratively painted, stuffed and embellished with eery green eyes and lacy collar.  This is a Terrye French design and one which really caught my eye.  The green eyes seem to track from any direction.  Ah, then we have the green and purple striped tail...need I say more.  This piece could be placed on a sofa nestled in amongst the cushions, on a shelf, on a covered porch...well the possibilities are many. 

Measurements: 15" tall, 8" wide. Come on now...this kitty needs a home.

Priority Mail shipping is included in the price for this piece and will be shipped out in 1-2 days from placement of the order.

PUMPKIN KITTY HAND PAINTED CAT

This is an adaptation of a Terrye French design that I tweaked, decreased the size and made it my own.  All was constructed  from painted fabric (cut, sewn, stuffed and painted) to the ebellishments (button eyes and lacy collar).   This patient kitty is sitting with its green and purple tail wrapped around two pumpkins..  I have only made a few as they were pretty labor intensive.  It is a charming piece and would look great wherever you wish to place it.  The eyes are sewn on but I don't know that I would feel comfortable giving it to a child or infant.  This Fall feline is looking for a good home.

Measures approximately 9.5" tall and 5" wide. 

Priority mail shipping is included with the price of this piece.  This will be mailed 1-2 days after the order is received.
