Painting is extremely therapeutic for me. After a very long day when everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, I just want to grab a paint brush and start painting. I forget I am going to be writing a blog post about it. Of course after painting for about an hour, I realize Oh snap, I should have taken a picture.
This was a very pretty dresser to start out with. She got curves and legs. But I wanted her to be something special...very Marie Antoinette.
Soft, feminine with a bit of bling. But nothing in life is perfect. She has her own perfectly imperfect flaws.
I painted her with Anne Sloan's Old White then topped it with watered down Louis Blue. I added antique gold wax to bring out the details. Then used clear wax and dark wax to age it a bit. Isn't she lovely? This girl got some attitude!
