Chances are you’ve had this song stuck in your head sometime in the past few weeks. I have – more than once.
It is relevant to the latest canvas painting I did as a birthday present for my bff, Jill.
This is the two of us giving our best duck faces.
She loves the beach. I think it is her happy place. So I painted a beach scene for her!
She seemed very happy with it. As soon as she opened it she exclaimed, “I can’t hang this in the bathroom!”.
I knew she was looking for a beach scene to hang in her bathroom. It made me happy to make her happy and that’s a lot of happy!
What is your happy place?
This old mirror has quite a history.
Damaged mirror frame
It survived several generations of my client’s family and a voyage across the Atlantic ocean from Germany. It amazes me that the mirror never broke while the frame suffered some extensive damage.
I made a mold of a corner that was intact and used some cake decorating tools to rebuild this corner and some other missing pieces. Then I waved my magic paintbrush to give it a new finish and here is the end result.
Restored mirror frame
This is the rebuilt corner.
And here it is back in its home getting ready to be hung in the dining room.
I love a challenge!
And a good story behind any piece that needs to be restored.
