Tole Painting - Tole painting on just about any surface is what I love to do, but wood is my favorite surface. Many of my projects or subjects are inspired by some of my favorite artists, Colleen Parry, Susan Jill Hall, Barbara Lloyd, Karen Stone or even by a greeting card, graphic, fabric, etc. I love painting country, seasonal, garden items and custom orders are always welcomed! My husband Al cuts all my wood projects - couldn't do any of this without him :)
Quilting - I recently started quilting and appliqueing, finding a place in my heart for this as well. I enjoy sewing baby quilts and seasonal table runners with placemats. If you are interested in a full size quilt or want to have a tableunner designed for your kitchen decor then please let me know. I really enjoy designing quilted items because it's like painting but with fabric :) Check out some of my quilted work under products.
I hope you enjoy my work and art! Keep me in your favorites as there will be more to come. Enjoy! - Cheryle

Painted Vintage Windows -
I love to paint on old wooden framed windows. Here are some pictures of 2 window paintings I have done. I do not use glass paint on my windows. I use acrylic paint with a sealer medium mixed in that treats the paint and it adheres better. After painting the project I will seal it with the same sealer and your painted window will last for years.
The first window was for my kitchen. I wanted to paint a Tuscany look to match my kitchen. There are 3 panels on this window so I picked 3 different kind of grapes to paint on each panel. I then painted the window frame a tuscany yellow color and then used what's called a crackling medium, painted the frame an eggplant purple to create the distress look of old.
The second window was for a client who wanted a garden of flowers. I loved painting this window! I tried to throw in a variety of flowers but not make it too busy. The bees are cut from baltic birch and attached to the window with epoxy glue. I painted the wood frame a sage green color and applied the crackle medium and then overlayed with a forest green paint to create the distress cracks.
**** If you are interested in a painted window email me firstname.lastname@example.org what you are interested in - Price varies depending on size of window and project but all windows start at 200.00 - this does not include S/H.
NOTE - Do not scrub the glass or use cleaning products. Just a damp cloth and lightly wiping the window will keep it for a very long time. Click the more link to see my Birdhouse window I painted over 11 years ago and it is still hanging in my house :)
