Candid Camera! Painting Class Photo Collages

Hello Darling! (I hope it’s OK that I call you “darling”, since I call most everyone “darling” or “sweetheart”!)

I think she called people “darling”! I […]

Before, After and After ( a furniture re-do, re-done)

Way back in 2012, I painted this old girl with ASCP, in Paris Gray. As you see, I left the top in its natural state. I was searching for a Nordic look, but think it just turned out boring. So, in my “sell it, or re-paint it” mode, I came up with this new version. […]
