I've had a lot of requests for Flamingo paintings since coming to Florida. Always thought of flamingos as a bit too kitsch and never got around to painting one. But I met some folks at a craft show in Mount Dora who were selling pillows and other items using vintage 1930's-40's "Barkcloth" material. I bought a few of their pillows (www.oldefavorites.com)!
And I thought the style of the barkcloth paintings would be an interesting backdrop for a flamingo painting....so I borrowed the idea and did a black background with a vintage floral design. The full painting is above; the trivet/placemat design, now available, is below. Hope you like it!
I'll be at The Villages, Spanish Springs, Craft show this weekend (January 7,8) if you are in the neighborhood! Please stop by!
This page is where I put stuff that doesn't fit elsewhere.... news, photos, an occassional idea, work in process, etc.
