Pin It
Happy New Year friends!!  We're winging our way into 2014 full of hope and promise!  Hope you and yours have a joyous and prosperous New Year!

I feel like I haven't been able to truly warm up here since sometime in mid November.  Brrr!  It definitely has me longing for the days when we lived in Hawaii.  As frequently happens to me, I tend to paint in waves of colors that speak to my 'moments'.  That's not weird or anything is it?  Right now I'm thinking of all things frosty.  Perhaps even the new movie Frozen.  And since I want to start my New Year off right here is a reveal just for you!  This pretty little vintage Chest on Chest Dresser was purchased from a client when she decided she no longer needed it.  Other than some veneer chips it was in excellent condition.  
I mixed the palest of blues with some Old White and Duck Egg.  I love those feet!
Using only the Old White and Duck Egg I tried to give the illusion of a line of trees covered in a soft layer of snow.  I am not a fine artist by any stretch of any one's imagination, but I thought it worked out well in that lovely oval frame.  
New glass bubbly hardware only adds more of that frothy frosty feeling.  
On the upper drawers I found some cute silver metal knobs put opted to paint them with the Old White to repeat the snowy look.
I wish I had some better lighting to do this piece some justice, but it's just too cold to open up the workshop doors for a good photo.  And darn it, wouldn't you know we have a nice little coating of snow for a backdrop!
So tell me what you think of "Frozen", and I hope you are staying warm wherever you are!

  1. oh it's gorgeous!!!! i LOVE the look of the tree!

  2. Your snowy tree is beautiful Deb! And funny thing, just moments ago I was looking out the window thinking how gorgeous the trees look tonight with a fresh coat of snow. It started snowing here a few hours ago and it's those big wet flakes that stick to everything. I think the cold and snow were the perfect inspiration for this lovely piece! Stay warm and cozy!

  3. Beautiful work Deb! I'm cold too. Keep busy painting and we will make it to warmer weather : )

  4. Cold or not, that dresser is fantastic.

  5. I think you did a wonderful job with Frozen -- your color choices, the knobs and the tree in the oval. Keep up the great work. Ann Marie @ Iris Abbey


Go ahead and say something, it will make my day!
