For My Daughter

Another busy weekend what with work in both the garden and studio. Yesterday was warm enough to pull in some of the plants and clean up more of the garden for the winter.

I hope you had a productive and satisfying weekend too.

The lizard picture is actually the back part of my daughter's kitchen chair. I painted chairs for each of the members of our family. At the time, she liked lizards.

 Over the years, you can see, they became quite worn. If you look closely, you can see how old they are.


  1. What a great idea; painting chairs to suit each person. When Mr. cowboy built bookshelves, everyone picked their favourite paragraph from a book and I copied those onto the ends of the shelves.

  2. oh this is so cute. you can see all the love on this piece.
