A few of My Hand Painted Pieces

Here is a picture of a chair I picked out of a trash truck. I loved the lines but not the brown color. So I added some happiness to the chair :-) This style of painting is actually my favorite but you know what they say about variety...

My first try at zebra stripes:

First attempt at pansies:

All done freehand

Trying out metallic paint~trying to go for a Steam Punk look. The spikes on the back as well as the top have holographic glitter on them:

Blonde laminate Cedar Lined Wardrobe found on side of road. Just added some happy paint and sold it to a new home.

I love the chair. I don't normally mix my style of painting but recently painted stripes and checks on a tray with little green frogs, and it sold!!! I could hardly believe it. You do a really great job with your painting, so glad to have found your blog.

Katy- when I first saw this, I immediately thought about an Event in my town (to raise money for Hospice)... It's called 'The Chair Affair'... artists paint chairs and they are auctioned off.

Your chair is AWESOME!

Katy, it all looks so good, but my favorite is the first chair! It is so cute! I would never have the patience to paint like you do! Great Job!

Oh wow. I'm so glad to have found your blog. I feel like I just found my artsy soul mate. I love it all but the first chair and the wardrobe are especially amazing. Love them! Don't you kind of hate to say good bye to them when they are sold? I just sold a piece today that I wish I had kept.
