Paint Girl

Today, I'm Paint Girl!

I have this thing about green. I'm a green person....green thumb, 'greenie' attitudes. The first time my mom let me decorate my bedroom, I picked a white printed wall paper for one wall and painted the other walls a cool mint green. Threw in a couple of Monet posters and I thought it was the most beautiful room ever. I think my heart rate literally slows down when I'm in a soft green room.

So, over a year ago, this came into my life:

First, let me state that photographing glass is tough! You can see my reflection in the picture.
Anywaaay...
I was vending hand dyed fabrics at a local quilt show and sold some scrap squares to a lady. The next day, she came back with this little picture. She'd taken my hand dyed scrap, painted this little-bitty scene on it, mounted it, framed it and painted the frame. On the spot, I bartered with her for the picture. It's so Green!

Now, my house has to match.

Here you can see the wall color I've chosen and today's project: the armoire (see all the stereo componants scattered about?). I'm painting it cream...to go with the green, of course. It's been a darkish teal for 8 years:

One of these days, I'm going to post a picture of a clean room. Won't you be surprised?

A picture of a clean room would be boring, static and mundane. Your pictures are of change and therefor much more interesting. I love the way you think!
