Since I had a snow day and a holiday this weekend, I have had four days to create a variety of messes.
For most of my long weekend I created this:
This is my new (taken from the street) chair that I have been preparing to reupholster. I have finally managed to get all the old, smelly fabric off and have covered the upholstered parts in trash bags so I can paint it. The painting has to wait because I am still undecided on fabric...this could be a while...
Since my work on the chair was in a holding pattern due to my indecisiveness about anything, I pulled out my paints. My sister got married a week ago at Fearrington Village in Pittsboro, NC. Fearrington Village is an idyllic little community of shops, restaurants, and COWS! A herd of Belted Galloway cows call Fearrington home. During the rehearsal, instead of helping with the big day details, I wandered off to see the cows.
I haven't painted in quite some time. Not a real painting. Most things I have done over the past few years have been very flat with basic colors for nurseries (silhouettes) and man caves (sports logos). These required solid colors with distinct lines. I was afraid that I couldn't do Miss Moo much justice.
But my weekend isn't over yet, so off to my sewing room I go!!!
