Creating Art & Crafts

I guess I am a strange duck, so to speak, but it is not unusual for me to take something that would be considered a craft and make art out of it.

I purchased this toilet tissue holder last night at an auction. It was very plain and I just knew I had to give it a new life. To me a house should not be just a house but a structure that should contain pieces that give it character. While I love painting in the traditional sense, I also like doing things like this.

This piece after being stained will be a conversation piece in my guest bathroom.

When you are painting it is sometimes easy to get “stuck in a rut”. It is always good to experiment with different projects and differrent styles. I have been painting a long time but still learn something new when I watch other artists.

Expand your horizon and reach for the stars or even paint a few. Have a great day.

I love art, especially photography and painting. My next addition is crafts or primarily needlecrafts. And as if that was not enough, I am a genealogist.
