New Paintings & Queen of Shabby Blog!

Thank you all for your kind notes regarding my "Smokey" he surely is missed around helps knowing I wasnt alone in making that call..... Well, on another note here is what I have been up too....painting of course.... here is a pretty antique table I painted all free hand, even the scrolls....I love how it came out. I plan on doing more furniture soon. On another note I was so thrilled to visit Chris' (Tutti Chic) blog, she has a link to Rachael Ashwells new blog! I was so thrilled, I think it all started when I first picked up a Shabby Chic book, I looked at all the scuffed beautiful architectural elements, white sofa,fluffy squishy pillows mixed with beautiful crystal chandeliers ,oil paintings of roses and knew thats what I loved ! I still have my book and bought her second. Ohh the cable show on style really did it for me.....watching Christie Repasy give a demonstration of her oil painted roses, thats when I knew I was going to paint roses ! When you think of it , all our blogs really were inspired of her style one way or another, wouldnt it be neat to have that type of influence on a huge number of people! I'm sure she is very humbled at the thought! I'll stop rambling on and on and here is our reigning Queen Rachael Ashwell's new blog! Good day to you all, Hugs, Kimberly

How long have you been painting? Wow just beautiful. I keep thinking that there is a rose painting in me somewhere. How did you get started? Are there any books that you would recommend.
I just need to pick up that brush, right?
