Twyla on Tuesday

Hello dear friends!
Today I thought I would show you some things
I have painted.
I adore wooden shoe forms and normally would Never
consider painting them as I prefer seeing the pretty wood,
but I happened to find a couple that were not pretty at all!

I picked them up thinking that it would be fun to paint them.
The first one here is painted with Martha Stewart's Lagoon.
Such a pretty color!

I thought cherries would be a pretty decoration.

This next shoe is painted a pretty light pink. I then painted one
of my cottage scenes on it.

I really enjoyed painting these and am looking for more
homely shoe forms!

I have a small collection of oil cans.
I really wanted to add some whimsy to them.
Here is one I have painted, again with cherries!

My latest mixed media painting is this little sailboat.
It's called Merrily Down the Stream.  I painted the clouds and the sky
and the rest is scrapbook paper.
I continue to love this art form.
It makes me happy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Enjoy Your Day!
Love, Twyla

Who would have ever thought of it? It is amazing what a little paint can do to turn something beautiful. The cherries motif is cute, as is the cottage! Love you!

Love the blue with the cherries, Twyla! I just bought some fabric like that only it has little strawberries on it too and I'm using it in my button ball garlands!

I didn't know you collected oil cans! Do you have a crush on the tin man? :)

You are certainly a talented painter and have such a knack at making the ordinary look beautiful! I especially love the pink shoe form with the cottage.
