painting: lazy susans

Falling Leaves 11-2007

Grapevine 12-2007

White Flowers Jan -2008

The lazy susans all started with the leaves image up top. I was given a plain wooden lazy susan by my mother in law, Cindy. I kept it in my studio (aka garage) for awhile not sure what to do with it yet. Then, my sister got engaged in September and I was going back to NY to celebrate with them. I wanted to bring something nice, was thinking of doing a regular painting but remembered the lazy susan. They had just move into an apt so, I thought that would be a perfefct use for it. I hadn't painted in almost a year (very busy after my second son, Hudson was born). I had an idea in my head for falling leave probably the entire year so, when I started to paint it came together in a matter of hours. My fastest painting to date! I think it was bottled up for so long it just came pouring out once i started. That piece lead to my second & third lazy susans. The grapevine was for my parents (who have a wine theme throughout the home) and the white flowers was for Cindy. I haven't done any other since January but, I'm sure I will again soon.

You painted furniture is so pretty. One of these days when we have money want to commission you for a rustic in the mountains theme table:)
