Happiness is my favorite color

I have always loved to paint. Contrasting colors, complimentary colors, shades of the same color. The more color the better. As a child, paint ended up on paper, on canvas and everywhere paint was suppose to be. Then, I discovered thrift stores and garage sales. Paper became wood and the rest is history.

What joy to find a weathered item that was once cherished in it's prime and give it a dose of happiness in the form of a colorful coat of paint.

All of my painted wood slice ornaments are sourced from vendors who use downed trees to cut, sand and produce the best lightweight and durable ornaments. I get to bring a piece of nature back to life with brightly colored designs.

Finding an item to revive makes me happy. Painting an item makes me happy. Having someone find delight in the finished product makes me happy. Happiness truly is my favorite color. (But to be truthful, blue is my second favorite).
