A few of the nicer more collectible graining tools and brushes I returned from London with.
Nice to find a couple of Bellamy’s leather graining rollers, also a graduated steel tooth comb in tact, a few old unused Badgers and a check roller with spare wheels. The check rollers feed brush has FOR WATER stamped on the ferrel, most were used in oil so it’s rare to find one dedicated for use in water.
🇸🇰⬇️ Sometimes people say to us - folk art and furniture has nothing to do with present day.
For us it is absolutely not true.
#folkart does not nessesarely belong to the past. Sometimes a smart interior stylist is all it needs. ⠀
Let's learn from the professionals.
✔️Folk and decorated furniture looks perfect in monochrome spacy interiors. White, back, steel colors or background can help you, if you like less saturated interiors.

✔️ #decoratedfurniture plays the leading role and determines the unique character of Fusion and Loft interiors. Fusion allows more colorful and eclectic combinations.

🇸🇰 Častokrát počujeme: folklór a maľovaný nábytok nemajú nič spoločné s dnešným životom, hlavne pre mládež.
Máme ďaleko do staroby a sme presvedčení - starý nábytok nepatrí len minulosti. Občas stačí iba dobrý dizajnér a nábytok vyznie v interiéri ako skvost.
Učme sa od najlepších svetových dizajnérov. ⠀
✔️⠀monochrómne a minimalistické pozadie ľudovému nábytku len prospeje. Keď ste priaznivcom vizuálne ľahkých interiérov a zároveň by ste chceli zachovať individuálny štýl, kombinácie bielej, čiernej, antracitovej, oceľovej je perfektné riešenie.

✔️ Vďaka ľudovému a dekorovanému nábytku vznikajú interiéry štýlu Fusion a Loft. Taký nábytok pridáva interiéru unikátny charakter a status. Dôležité je však dodržať mieru.

Did you know that when I first started in this business, I focused mainly on hand-painted tiles
Some days I miss it, but all of the techniques I used during that time translated well into developing beautiful, detail oriented pieces of art today!
Raise your hand if you have work to do but would rather do something that brings the fun!🙋🏼♀️ Y’all, I have soooo much to do and so much I want to do. One non-negotiable today is to get the fronts of these doors painted with a layer of color. Not necessarily not-fun but definitely in the “work” category.
I WANT to finish several paintings 🖼 sitting around. I can’t quit thinking about what I want to do next on each one. I also know that doing “work stuff” kinda zaps that creativity zone right outta me by afternoon time.
Oh did I mention I’m home with ALL the boys today 👦🏽👦🏾👦🏻💙 Tell me, when are you the most creative Morning or afternoon Before you do all the things or after you check of your to do list Or , are you the creative person I just don’t get, you feel creative all the time all day everyday 😝
Over the years I’ve found satisfaction in every commission I’ve had the pleasure to be a part of but this, THIS!!!!! Working in Paris is still my all-time favorite!! I worked with the best on this gorgeous restoration project in Salle Munche at École Musique Normale de Paris, 17 eme. Vivre the painting life and Vivre La France! 🇾🇪❤️ i left a piece of my ❤️ there, I think it’s time I go and find it✨🙏😍✈️ #restorationartist #decorator #decorativepainter #ifixart #irestoreart #internationalartist #1919 #alfredcortot
Custom hand rendered finish for interior designer. Cabinet shop could not duplicate their selected finish on doors so she called me! From MDF to this beautiful hand rendered finish perfectly matched to her sample, these pieces are being shipped to Naples Florida tomorrow! I hope she sends me photos when everything is installed!
Hugh, @luckyjol and I finished the mural in the foyer at @hiddenbrookfarmny Here are some details.
1. My paint box of colors that I used for a lot of the foliage.
2. Close up of the Mommy and baby dear we saw the other day. Mommy was 3” high and baby was 2”
3. The dragonfly 2”
4. The bunny under the rhododendron
5. The swallows on the upper part of the mural
6. The doves for Molly on the ceiling
7. My bestie and painting partner putting the clear varnish on the lower section of the mural
8. A video of Chris, @highervibe and I walking under the English Weeping Beech Tree
9. Walter the woodpecker, as Hugh was painting him the real Walter woodpecker was pecking on the chimney. It was as if he knew Hugh was painting him. Hugh will be posting an album of the entire mural later. #muralists #muralistsonthego #decorativepainter #artist #artistoninstagram #artistsonthego #gratefullife #englishweepingbeechtree #deer #woodpecker #bunny #rabbit #flora #birds
I saw this on someone's page and had to post it...
Some days I get very discouraged after giving an estimate or quote because I dont think people realize all the behind the scenes things that go into creating a beautiful piece of furniture or art..and they definitely dont understand the value of my expertise.
Its funny because I can think of a few more things to add to this list, but this makes enough of a point.
Someone recently said to me..you are so lucky, you paint, and go to the beach and do whatever you want, must be nice. I just smiled and said...it is. Some people just have no idea..and that's ok...
Is anyone still reading this
