A Floral Footstool

Here is the large red footstool I posted a picture of a few weeks ago, redesigned. I think it looks better. The flowers aren't as purple in the real thing as they appear in the photo, though. The green actually is pretty close to the original. I put it in front of the white cabinet to give a better idea of the scale of it. I would appreciate any comments on it.

First Attempt at Folk Art

I painted over the junk I painted on the footstool below and tried my luck at Folk Art. I have alot to learn about painting the flowers and on design, but I really enjoyed doing this. I hope there is a market for this sort of thing.

Does this look as bad as I think it does?

I've never done anything like this and thought I would try something completely different. I know it kind of looks junky, but I thought I would post it anyways. Maybe I'll paint over it and try again.

A Table Sized Footstool!!

I made this table sized footstool the other day to try to sell at our new space at a local craft and antique mall. I painted it a country red, althought I wish I had left it white. Oh well. Live and learn. If it doesn't sell, I will use it in the living room.
