Handpainted mirror

Another log cabin mirror

Here is  my latest log cabin mirror.
Mirrors are very difficult for me to photograph.

You really can't get the full effect because of the many reflections and the light bouncing off.

This is a cozy little get away cabin nestled at the foot of the mountains with the snow drifting down.
 A sweet place for two to spend a winters night by the fire.

Off to do some gardening (maybe I can sneak in a little painting this evening).

Hope to see you soon,

Dogwood Blossoms

Well, I finally got them finished.

I had an order to paint dogwood blossoms on a cannister set.  I love dogwoods, but they are not something I paint a lot.  If I don't do something regularly, I begin to get a little rusty.  So, I decided to paint several items before I tackled Sharon's cannister set. 

First, I painted this vase.

Then, I painted this cover for a cake plate.

I painted a pitcher, and of course, you have to have glasses.

I painted a slate for someone's porch.
And then I decided I was ready.

And here it is.  I think it turned out pretty good.
If Sharon likes it then life is sweet!

Finishing a log cabin painting on a mirror tomorrow.

Hope to see you soon,

My friend the UPS guy made a rainy day delivery.

Below is a view of our current stock.
Most are priced at only 2 or 3 dollars!!!

They make wonderful gifts and great stocking stuffers!
( You have to think ahead you know!!)

I am painting dogwood blossoms on glassware.  I will try to give you some pictures tomorrow.  I have an order to hand paint a cannister set.  I am saving it until last, hoping to do a great job for a sweet neighbor.

Hope to see you soon,
