A COLD WINTER’S EVE PAINTED PLAQUE

I discovered this wonderful metal tray at a favorite thrift shop. I loved the patina of it and knew I would find the right design for it. We were just rudely reminded that Winter is still here with a visit from the polar vortex and record-setting subzero temperatures. This is where my mind was when I was in the design process – WINTER! I also say, hurry up Spring!

This is a small New England coastal community nestled in the pines and overlooking the ocean. The sleepy moon and hand-painted stars fill and brighten the night sky. One of the whimsical features is a wall out on the horizon. The other whimsical feature is the pair of snow people in the lower right corner.

This is just a small corner of the town but there is a white church and two homes. There is an inside frame of blue and off white checks with a red dip dot just to set the design off. This plaque has been sealed with a spray matte varnish. A black silk cord has been attached for hanging purposes.

Measurements: Approximately 13¾-inches tall, 10½-inches wide and ½-inch deep.

This is a hand-painted one-of-a-kind designed by me and is for decorative purposes only.

Price is $48.95 plus $14.00 Priority Shipping within the USA only.

WHITE ENAMEL TIN WITH PAINTED RED GERANIUMS

This was a case of “see object, paint hydrangeas on it”. I immediately pictured a bouquet of red geraniums. The white enamel with black trim on the rim was just what I was looking for! This is my hoping for an early Spring/Summer piece in the middle of a cold cold winter.

Geraniums and hydrangeas are two of my favorite flowers and I cannot resist painting them when I find the right piece to show them off! There is a little metal triangular piece on the back for hanging purposes. Store whatever suits your fancy in this enamel piece…more geraniums (silk or natural blossoms?).

Measures: Approximately 5½-inches wide at its widest, 9½-inches tall and 3-inches deep

This is a one-of-a-kind piece and is for decorative purposes only.

Price is 22.00 plus $8.60 priority shipping within the USA only.

LOVE UNDER THE SEA PAINTED PLAQUE

With Valentine’s Day in a few short days, this is a different design that was rolling around in my weary brain. Tropical undersea thoughts were fighting with cold wintery thoughts and won for a short period of time. I pictured a merman and mermaid sitting on the sand with a coral-colored heart with skinny starfish surrounding the heart. There are multicolored fish swimming around the merpeople.

This is my own design and has been hand painted by me and is painted on plywood. The wood has been drilled with an attached rusty look wire and embellished with a resin pencil starfish.

There are multiple layers of paint including metallic lustre paint, background paint, stenciled waves and stenciled fish. As stated above, this is a unique piece for me and one of which I hope you enjoy! Valentine’s Day is just a few days away and should be ordered no later than February 11, 2019 before 3:00 p.m. CDT for arrival by February 14.

Measurements: 11" tall x 8½" tall (without the wire and starfish hanging apparatus).

This is a one-of-a-kind piece and is hand painted by me.

Price is $37.00 and shipping is $9.00 within the US.
International buyers, please e-mail me for shipping costs.
