Twice a year I participate in an art sale.
I am one of five women that put this event together.
We call ourselves The Traveling Door.
We don't have a permanent venue.
So we painted an old door purple,
and added some eye catching flair.
of where they can find us.
My daughter Liz converted it into a logo.
Didn't she do an amazing job?
She does blog banners and buttons too.
Check her out here.
What do I contribute?
Painted furniture and functional art.
I saw that one creative blogger described herself as a decorative artist.
I liked that term.
I guess that is what I do.
I take something ordinary,
and put my own controversial spin on it.
Today I started with this piece.
I tend to use dark colors a lot
so I decided to challenge myself
and do something in the light aqua family.
This is as far as i got today.
I am undecided where I will go next.
The sides are wide stripes of the blue and white.
But what to do on top?
Do I play it safe and do a white argyle on top
or dial it up and limit my buyers with a floral design?
I am kind of leaning toward calmer on this piece.
Maybe I am getting that vibe from the color.
Not everything went as planned today.
I also took an old cake plate.
I opted for blue here too.
What is happening to me?
When did I start liking blue?
It was looking very pretty.
I thought an area needed to be touched up.
I went to add a bit more paint
and it went all crinkle on me.
So I am sanding it down.
and starting over.
Thanks for visiting.
I hope to have something done everyday
between now and May 6th.
I say that so I am accountable now.
It keeps me on task.
