On My Desk Wednesday

Remember the birdhouses my dad made? Well, after plenty of painting, sanding, painting over, thinking, more painting, and glossing here's what the smaller one looks like:

The Front

One of my favorite color combinations is blue and brown. Especially, a light blue and a chocolate brown. Pretty, pretty! The design around the opening and on the back are inspired by henna designs, which I've been doodling a lot lately. This birdhouse wasn't built in a way that you can open it up and clean it out every season, so I think it's better as a decorative piece.

What have I learned while painting this? Well, first I should decide exactly how I want it painted before starting to paint it. Second, power sanders are AWESOME!

In the Morning Sun - Frontside

The sun is so pretty this morning. And the grass is so green.
