A tree grows on wood


May 13, 2013 by twinoaksstudio

Hi everyone!

I’ve been very, very busy getting ready for the Lucketts Spring Market.   I can’t believe its this weekend!   Wow!

This is one of the many hand painted pieces I will be bringing with me.   The graphic is from the Graphics Fairy Website.   (Karen, the Graphics Fairy, will be at the Lucketts Spring Market too!  So exciting!)   The wood is reclaimed knotty pine paneling.   I chose these pieces of lumber because of their character.   Nice and Knotty!

For paint I used a wash of Miss Mustardseed’s Milk Paint in Typewriter.  The tree was painted using acrylic paints.   Furniture wax tops off the piece.

I’m hoping it finds a new home next weekend.   If you happen to be at Lucketts look for my booth and stop by and say “hi!”.

Thanks for visiting!

PS – I will be linking this up with the following link parties – thanks for hosting ladies!

    I adore your table….bet it sells early. Perfect place to make family tree memories. Would love having my grandmother sit there and tell me all her stories and who belonged to whom.

    Hope it’s a wonderful weekend, would love to be there, but Texas is a little to far.

    Pauline, wonderful artisanship. Hope Lucketts Spring Market goes swimmingly!


    • Hi Jennifer! Thanks for stopping by. The teenagers will be “helping” me out on Saturday – likely they will be in my booth for 10 minutes then be begging me to go browse for themselves! This will be an adventure indeed. Take care, — Pauline

    What a lovely piece. I really like the shading on the trunk and the knots in the pine. Have fun at Lucketts Spring Market!

    What a beautiful rustic piece! I don’t remember seeing it on Sunday. Did it sell?

    • Hello Sharon! It generated quite a bit of interest and many many compliments. I had my prices set a little high I think (my first show and am learning what my price points should be!) and for this piece in particular, I thought it would be perfect for our cabin in West Virginia, so I wiggled down a lot on my other pieces on Sunday (like my cow painting “Mona” sold on Sunday!) but I didn’t adjust this price much, so I still have it and its going out to the mountains with us 🙂 Lucketts was a great experiment for me and I learned an awful lot. I will be bringing more signs with me next year, and at that point I doubt I’ll be trying to keep them! It was great fun. A lot of work but great fun. Glad to hear you had fun too! — Pauline

    hello, I love the way this looks! did you use a wash of “typewriter” or was it mixed 1:1?
