Inspiration from Vintage Frames

One of my favorite things to do on my lunch break is visit local antique shops. I consider them my “happy place” where I can escape from office stress, even if it’s just for a little while.  These shops are always full of inspiration! I typically come across unusual finds, art, vintage pieces and refinished furniture – always something exciting around every corner. And I rarely leave empty-handed!  Last week while I was shopping at Queen of Hearts in Alpharetta, GA, I came across a couple of rectangular refinished wooden frames that had an oval-shaped center. And, I really liked the beautiful carvings around the edges. Within seconds of spotting the frames, I knew they were coming home with me.

In keeping with the frames, I wanted to create paintings that had a vintage, delicate feel. I love painting robins and birds’ nests so this seemed like a natural fit.  I am absolutely in love with the result. These are just so sweet and compliment each other very well. I had a serious debate about whether or not I should sell them. I finally decided to put them out there and see what happens. If they sell, fine. If not, that’s fine too. They will go perfectly in my guest bedroom 🙂
