About Me ~ My Old Art Projects

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page! DIY Vintage Chic.

I've said it before and I'll say it again... I love art because it never gets boring. I constantly have a number of projects in various stages sitting around. If I get stuck on a project, can't figure out what I want to do next, don't like it... there's always another project waiting to be worked on until I can come up with a solution.

Recently I've been thinking about diving back into some of my old mediums. A wood carving... maybe some watercolor... we'll see. It made me dig up some of my past work and I thought I'd share.
