Painting: A Life Passion


Years ago I attended a fund raising auction for the private school I worked for. I fell in love with a hand painted mirror frame painted with folk art village scenes. Fortunately, I did not win the bid. Fortunately, because I decided on the spot that I could, and would, paint one for myself. I went to an art supply store the very next day and purchased brushes, paints, and an unfinished frame. This venture was the start of one of my life passions. The first item I painted was the egg pictured and the second was the mirror frame. Since then I have painted and sold quite a few of these framed mirrors. I also paint furniture and wall murals - and anything else with a surface to paint! (I've improved since the egg!)
