    "F for Fence with pretty flower"

I'm constantly thinking of different ways to handle my letters.  I am working on painting some aprons and discovered that the white fabric paint works very well when I add to while and blue paint in clouds.  

I just couldn't resist placing a silk daisy behind the fence.  I was so tickled with the small silk flowers I added to the "D" I decided to continue with that thought for "F".  


I want my paper mache' letters to stand on their own, I would also love to add  diversity to my letters and as I start over adding 2nd additions, I will add more thoughts for themes. I believe this will allow all people to be hopefully be represented in my art work.  I want to fill the desires of as many people as I can. 

I will remind everyone once again, I will take commissioned orders.

D in Lace


                                    " D in Lace " 

   I went rather bold with my D in this bright green paint.  I originally thought I would continue on with the painted lace, but I got a little side tracked one day when I went to lunch with a friend of mine.  

   We had lunch at The Picnic Cafe in Belle Meade, TN.  It is a very quaint and delightful place for a luncheon on a sunny afternoon.  


 The cafe places the prettiest little lace doillies on each dinner plate.  When I finished my meal I noticed that my doilly was still stain free, so I thought I might take it home to experiment painting on, in lieu of my new found obsession with painting lace.  This is what is the result of my experimentation.  I was rather pleased with the finished product. I topped it off with a big pink bow and a bunch of small white silk flowers and tiny little flowers along the left side.
