My functional art pieces are sanded and prepped, first primed then painted or stained readying the surface for decorative painting. I typically lay out the design in pencil; set up a color palette, finishing the design with an ink pen in a linear fashion. All pieces receive several coats of varnish; in between each layer I hand rub the surface creating a soft buffed finish. Every piece is finished with a bee’s wax to make sure protection.

Today’s inspiration:

Our homes are a reflection of who we are – the place where  our story begins and our heart lives.  *Unknown.
