This the top of a foot stool. I will have more stools for you to look at so you can see the size. Even though they are hand painted they are completely durable. they can be used as a foot rest, a small side table or as a foot stool that you can step on over and over again.
this is the “God of Corn” which represents food and plenty. Please click on the picture to see it up close. You will see the cobs of corn in the headdress, the bird head and the jewelery surrounding the god.
You can never go wrong with hearts. Girls of all ages love them. Whether it’s on a stool, t-shirt, pillow case, or silk you can never go wrong with hearts. Add their name on it and it’s even a bigger hit. Most furniture I paint for people is already found in their house, usually in the basement or tucked in a corner, a chair from Aunt Becky or dresser you picked up at a yard sale. Now it can turned into a usable piece of art. Don”t forget to click on the picture.
These flowers were first painted on a floor mat. I was asked to paint this stool to liven up a dark tiny apartment. What a difference it made. My neighbors kids loved the design so I painted little chairs for them. As the kids grow, their mom is going to turn the chairs into little bed tables.
It started with the table, very colorful, with flowers on top and Mayan numbers on the bottom shelf. I was with a friend and she needed to stop at one of her clients. My friend Cory is a massage therapist who comes to your house, you gotta love that. We walk into the 3rd floor penthouse, in Puerto Aventuras.
It was defiantly gorgeous apartment. As she showed us around, I noticed in the daughters room that she had my Mayan table, 2 of my floor pillows, and some smaller ones for the bed.
The woman said she was wanting
to meet the artist because she wanted more artwork done in her daughters room.. well, there I was, ready to take the order. I ended up painting her computer desk, a dresser and I painted a headboard of flowers right on the wall. She had the coolest, brightest bedroom in the neighborhood. The envy of all her friends. I was very happy and surprised by the outcome since we blended bright intense colors and mixed it with pastel colors.
It really looked great.. Or as Casey put it “AWESOME”.
