Yep - that's how I would describe today - LAZY. haha. It's cold, it's
rainy, it's gray. Dan got home from work - grabbed his bike
and clothes -
and left for the Fat Tire Bike Race in
Hayward, WI, this morning. So after he left - I sat down with
my coffee and my computer - and proceeded to
waste a few hours down the rabbit hole! haha.
Good thing Makayla (that's my studio asst... say HI Makayla! haha)
came today - I think she got more done than me! haha. Here
she is painting a basecoat of DecoArt Americana
Chalky Paint onto wooden
bowls I'm doing a tutorial on - and that I'm gonna use
for the top of some displays in my booth.
I added some DecoArt Weathered Wood to areas I
want to crackle. Oh yeah - and I'm doing the same techniques
on some scrabble tile holders too.
I'll have the FULL tutorial up in a few days - so watch for it!
I LOVE this color - it's called Escape! Really LOVE the new
Americana Chalky Finish Paints - they're so versatile and easy!
Then I was gathering and pricing a bunch of old artwork -
to bring to my friend's rummage sale tomorrow... I need to get rid
of some stuff and make room for all the new art and big canvases
I'm working on.
I'm all done with this style now... folkart/primitive... and I
just got a bunch back from my old agent and from
the magazine companies that just went out of business --
they had a bunch they hadn't sent back... so now I
have piles and piles I need to find new homes
So, if you're anywhere near Kenosha, WI on Saturday or
Sunday (Sept. 13 & 14) the big, multi-fam rummage sale is at:
5420 - 83rd Street
9am - 3pm!
Hope to see you there!! Have a fun weekend!
Oh and P.S. - I turned the furnace on today!! Yeah, I admit it! haha
