Day 13- Gertie

Day 13 of the painting challenge…

gertie.jpgDay 13 of the 30 in 30.   This was inspired from a pic I took while visiting Hollywood studios.  Or if you are like me, MGM Studios.  I don’t think I will ever call it anything else.

I had taken a cute pic of my daughter near it, and I loved the flowers and boat framing her.  The hat was still there too!  I also have a hidden mickey if you like to look for those.

This has a pretty bow for hanging, photos of it are in the listing in my etsy shoppe.  Link is below the image.

Day 12 The perch

Day 12 of the painting challenge…

The perch

Day 12 of the 30 in 30.   This is an abandoned chair that I pass on the way to my daughters school. It got me thinking as I always do when I see old cars, furniture or homes. At one time this item was brand new. It was picked out excitedly in a store, and brought home and enjoyed. It served its use for years and then one day was no longer pretty or useful. So it has been discarded and is now sitting outside and has a new use. Maybe a cat will come along and take a nap. Or a mouse will take some of the filling spilling out for its home.
Or a family member will visit in the form of a cardinal and remember it in its glory days.
These are all things I think when I see a beat up old car or home. It was new once and someone was proud to have it.
So this painting is giving this chair a chance to become someone’s art. And show us that there is beauty in something old and well loved.
