Ideas for New Painting, and a New Mirror...

Ok, here i go with a random mix of stuff again... I'm eying these lilies for a new painting. What do you think? the white with the dark background is always fun, really makes the white pop. Plus, i want my potential artist friends out there to get some ideas from these photos!

Here you can see the corner of one of my paintings with the intense dark light contrast

below one of my paintings of some lilies, (sold)

Ok, changing the subject...

check out this precious little platter i found at a little antiquey/thrift shop... oh how i love pink! I think it was about $6.00

I don't know where i stole this photo of this teeny weeny pink house , if i did i would give you credit, sorry... sorry.... but, if it's a pretty pink i'll grab it! I can't help myself... isn't this just darling.
very simple structure actually...

I really really want an old car or truck, painted this exact color, with cream leather interior... wouldn't that just be the best,
and then i could wear a big wide brimmed hat with flowers on it, and be that crazy old lady with the pink car...
now i'm just that crazy old lady, but no pink car...

And Finally check out this gorgeous mirror find. It was pretty in it's original form, but now painted and glazed, it's wonderful! I love it...she looks like a fairy tale mirror. I have another mirror find that i'm painting now, it came from a shop called "Everything But Grannies Panties" , i'm not kidding, that is the name.. and it totally lives up to that title! anyway, i will show you a before and after soon!




  1. Hi Cindy,
    I love visiting and looking at all your lovely things. The painting is wonderful.


  2. Did you paint the chair a metallic color? I love the fairytale mirror. I would kill for a mirror like that! I want a big giant one. Pretty pretty stuff, the platter is gorgeous.

  3. OK , I really like the second picture with the pink in it , I saved it , I hope you don't mind . I'm still draging my feet , but the mood will hit me one of these days and I will try your technique . I love that little pink platter or tray, I too am fascinated with pink latley. And your mirror turned out lovely , don't you think the details show up better in white ? That little pink house is the bomb !

  4. Oh I agree. The white flower against the dark background is stunning. The little pink cottage is the cutest!
