There is always a new project going on at my art table ~ some new projects, some old projects. Here sits a painting I started a year ago and never finished of my garden table in the back yard. I will try to finish that this year, (hmmmm, I wonder why I never finished that one).

I started some garden signs on old pieces of chippy wood molding that Galen had in the shop. I love old pieces of wood. Also, I'm painting a little wooden pig for another marble roller. Do you see those little painted Easter eggs on my art table? They will be painted with tiny Easter scenes of bunnies and chicks.

And, I'm working on more garden art tea cups and tea pots. I found a bunch of little porcelain tea pots at a shop last week, so they will be going on stakes for the garden.

The artist's world is limitless.
It can be found anywhere,
far from where he lives or a few feet away.
It is always on his doorstep.

It looks like you have a lot of fun projects to keep you busy. I will soon be putting out my tea pot and tea cup stakes which will make me think of you :).

Donna, I know how that feels, sometimes I start something and for some reason, I put it down. I love it when I can get back to it and finish painting. Looking forward to seeing this unfinished work when it is all done and looking lovely
