I might have mentioned just a *FEW* times
about how excited we are about working with the folks at the plantation
If you know us at all, you know it's a dream to be involved
In my excitement, however, I've let a few things slide, so to speak, at the studio
For starters, I have new colors I have NOT even opened!
I know! I can hardly believe it, either...
I took a bit of a breather the past two days,
focusing not on custom orders or clients, but on a few things I wanted to work on
just for the sake of doing it
The plantation rarely strays far from my thoughts, however
and its lush beauty certainly influenced my color choice
This little cocktail table started out pretty great
How much do you LOVE those long, curvy legs?
It seemed the perfect candidate for
Amy Howard Home's newest One Step Paint color, ORCHID
This was a really quick project...but I love the finished product
clean lines, simple finish, spectacular color
Here's the finished piece
I wanted to draw attention to those killer legs,
so I applied Amy Howard's Silver Leaf
(no Bole, just Size and Leaf)
Working on this piece today was a great way to quiet my mind
and just focus on creativity and beauty
How about you?
Is painting simply a means to an end for you, or is it your "me time"?
I also dipped my brush into one of the new Real Milk Paint colors,
but that's another post!
Anxious to hear more about the plantation?
Watch for a glimpse around the grounds,
better yet, start planning your visit...you don't want to miss this!
