The Happy Chair

Back of Happy Chair
This summer my neighbor had her granddaughter (Becka) over for about a week.  To keep her busy, Grandma asked Becka to paint a small bird house she had in the garden. I liked it so much that I asked Becka to paint an old chair that belonged to my grandmother that I had on my porch.  I told her to go wild with the colors.  There was only one request, that it be colorful.  The result is the "Happy Chair", I just love it.  All the colors of the rainbow are in this chair and it does make me happy everytime I see it.

Patriotic Bird

When I saw this acrilic painting of this little patriotic bird I knew I just had to have it.  I had gone into a frame store off Harwin Drive pricing frames, when I saw it on the floor.  I picked it up and new exactly where I would hang it.  It is hanging in my bathroom where I can see it while sitting on my throne.  The background colors are muted pale colors which makes the bird stand out painted in darker colors.  The little fellow looks lovely sitting on a small tree limb and even though he is alone, he looks very proud of his colorful feathers.  The picture fits perfect in my bathroom as the bird looks feminine yet the frame is very masculine.

Little Mexicans

Hola:  I saw a picture of a little mexican taking a siesta and was inspired to make it out of stained glass.  I love the way the moon's glass shows movement in the clouds.  These suncatchers have a 3D effect as the moon is soldered behind the cactus and the cactus is soldered behind the little mexican guy. The angle the picture was taken makes the suncatchers look larger to small, but they are actually the same size. Adios.
