Using a painting for my sign.

New Between The Weeds Sign

Oh how much fun painting this sign with a twist. I took an old stretched canvas and repainted a painting of a whimsical farmhouse garden with my sign in the painting. This is the new style, a new branding for my studio. I decided being serious is overrated and fun is so much better.

Be sure to check out my shop for some new work.

Have a brilliant fun day.

I know all I need to do is to create a way for them to connect. So please share post tweet and so whatever you can so my buyer finds me. Gratitude. The joyful feeling of helping is all I can offer you. Thank you.

Love this wonderful quote from Abraham Hicks.

Is harmony one note that everybody is singing? Or is it a whole lot of notes that are in vibrational harmony with each other? When you give your attention to anything, the Universe responds to it. When two of you are giving your attention to it, and there is no contradiction, it is a powerful vortex. That’s why a gathering such as this can achieve a great deal as you come together in greater and greater harmony and take thought beyond that which it has been before.

Custom Ordered Wall Hanging Cabinet Sold.

Painted Hanging Wall Cabinet with Botanical Art
Custom Painted Hanging Wall Cabinet

I loved making this cabinet and happily sent it off to a wonderful person. She sent me a message “The medicine cabinet truly is a work of art! Thank you!”. Honestly I could not agree more.

This cabinet is painted with three different color paints, distressed and stain then added to give it a very custom look. The panel is a hardboard clay art panel. I used watercolors, ink and acrylics to recapture a painting I had done which the customer liked. A custom handcrafted cabinet and an original painting makes this very special and a work of art, yes?
