She's got Legs...and they are Orchid

We've been SO busy lately!

For starters, I have new colors I have NOT even opened!
I know! I can hardly believe it, either...

I took a bit of a breather the past two days,
focusing not on custom orders or clients, but on a few things I wanted to work on
just for the sake of doing it

The beauty of spring rarely strays far from my thoughts, however
and its lush beauty certainly influenced my color choice



This little cocktail table started out pretty great


How much do you LOVE those long, curvy legs?

It seemed the perfect candidate for 
Amy Howard Home's newest One Step Paint color, ORCHID


This was a really quick project...but I love the finished product
clean lines, simple finish, spectacular color


Here's the finished piece


I wanted to draw attention to those killer legs,
so I applied Amy Howard's Silver Leaf
(no Bole, just Size and Leaf)


Working on this piece today was a great way to quiet my mind
and just focus on creativity and beauty

How about you?  
Is painting simply a means to an end for you, or is it your "me time"? 

I also dipped my brush into one of the new Real Milk Paint colors,
MINTY FRESH


but that's another post!

Reasons and Seasons



A good friend told me everything has a reason and a season...
and I could't agree more
Sometimes, though, it's hard to distinguish the reason 
and where one season ends and another begins!

But enough contemplative narrative...

No deep thought is required to embrace THIS season

SPRING has definitely SPRUNG!





There is something so fundamentally necessary and restorative about being outdoors,
preferably barefoot...connecting to nature




Achingly beautiful, isn't it?





Just waking up an hour early, engaging in the beauty of your surroundings;
it makes you  feel so ALIVE



This explosion of color has us yearning for happy, sunny colors on furniture...
How about you?
