This table was painted in the Summer of 2009. I really love this piece. It is sparkly and full of brilliant color. I love every single bit of it. Like most of my pieces there was a period of time were I started to resent it but that usually passes as it comes to completion. I stood back as I placed that last dot, took a deep breath and let it out with a sigh. I am done, I said literally out loud as I have done with each piece I have completed. There usually isn't anybody around to hear me but I say it anyway. When I received this table it was medium/ light stained wood with a satin finish that was worn down in many spots. I had no plan for it. I just sanded it, primed it and started the journey. It may sound strange but after spending some time w/ a piece...by the time I start it takes me where it wants me to go. This table was invisible, a nothing table that you wouldn't even think twice about and now....well, you tell me what you think now.
Click on the Photo's to make them larger. I am so excited that I found a way to really show my work and detail. Usually when I try to explain to someone....they have no idea what I am talking about....I usually tell people I obsessively paint patterns to cover an entire area. Does that describe what I do adequately? I think not...just makes me sound like I need a higher dose of medication. xoxox
