Deans Canvas In Progress

I know it doesnt look much like Dean anymore so ive decided not to focus on the likeness so much and start being a little more adventurous with the mediums I am using. I havent finished it yet im just doing wee bits at a time.

Eclectic Mirror Frame

Decide to do a spring clean yesterday, particularly in all of my ever growing storage boxes that hold old magazines in them..Could I throw them out? eh no...had to look through every single page of the thousands of magazines just in case there was a particuliar picture I liked or could use on something... I hear O.C.D screaming at me!!!! I covered  my mirror and at the same time had a Spring clean....Multitasking is my second name....

Remember The UGLY ASS FIRE !!!

The firescreen I inherited from a friend it was shiny brass, I just gave it a coat of paint. I decorated the Hearth in broken tiles for an easy wipe clean.

Another lovely find...I found it a bit worse for wear ..some nuts and bolts, a good scrub, a good sanding and a lashing of tung oil it turned out rather nice. Vintage Coal Scuttle
