Birds Lovers Chest



Birds Lovers Chest

This maple chest was built in Toccoa, Ga by well know furniture builder. I painted a couple of snowy egret on front door as a focal point and many small and colorful birds such as red breasted nuthatch, blue bird, painted bunting, cardinal, common yellowthroat and carolina wren on both sides of case. Rust on door hinges and pull is faux finish.

Loon Folding Table


Loon Folding Table







My client loves this painting. She told me that this loon on lake reminds her home state of Maine.

Often table top is the first place to show a sign of  wear and tear. Instead of touching up with marker, why don't you just cover the top with artwork which you love.


This type of small table is an ideal for artwork. It has large flat surface to display.

I recommend at least 3 coats of clear finish such as polycrylic at the end. (I do not recommend polyurethane)

Cmaden Field Style Leeds Chest




Leeds Chest (Shrimp Boat)






I painted panoramic "Lowcountry" scene and a  shrimp boat named "Miss Lila".

I am very pleased with the effect of faux finishs, specially rust on hinges and door pull, as well as wood  panel with rusty square cut nails on top.

Wondering Hermit Crab

I always paint little surprise where people normally do not expect. This case I painted wondering hermit crab on back of the door.

This old game table has seen better days yet still maintains its classic and elegant style. I dressed up with 4 different colored hydrangea bouquets with vines running between.
