Trying a new venture

For several years I have painted folk art for myself and to give to friends and family. But in recent months I have been blessed to have other come to love my painting and have had me do custom work for them. I am very excited about this, I don't know where it will lead, but for now I am enjoying the ride. So I thought I would post a few of the pieces of I have done

 This is a sign I did for this family to show the bases they have been to, with extra star tags for future bases. I have done a few of these no, they are quite fun.



This was a custom bench for this family, for there entry way. I thought it turned out wonderful and they just loved it. These benches are fun to do, each one I have done is a bit different in the details. That is what I love about folk art I can do similar things and yet they are completely different, no 2 alike.

I am starting small and trying to not overwhelm myself when asked if I can do a piece or asked if I can rush one to get it done quickly. I will just have to see where this new venture takes me.
