awww lol thanks for the compliment, but i don't want to be intimidating


I wouldn't want anyone to ever feel restrained from the arts by me, or feeling that my level of skill is unreachable.

I still see myself as an amateur, I have a lot of room to grow.

I was being tongue in cheek, it's something I feel we'd all be honered to watch as you complete it. It's more inspiration than intimidation anyways!

Can I ask what size it roughly is and is that done in ink or pencils?

Thank you....and I hadn't thought of the candle sticks really, I just grabbed them off my mantle. It was the colour of the candles, because I was hoping they would emphasise the orange, which the flash makes look like peach!

Hi Jarring!

Welcome to the thread and thank you sooo much for sharing your art. I love the painting of the stand, that's an outstandingly brilliant first time painting. You have much talent.

HI Qumu, I love your ideas for the splash of green.

I've posted this vid on another thread but it really gives me the get up and go when I'm procrastinating. It works absoluetly wonders for me, I just have it on headphones when I'm milling around. It's the best thing for pushing you forward...


Jane those candles go brilliant with the beast! I saw it this morning and clapped in joy, I can't wait for Jaky to wake up and see it.I love your eye for detail. I can't wait to see the blankey box, your house must be so full of positive energy. (Your real house that is, not the one we all share hehe)

Olaru, that's a fantastic short film! It looks so professional, the work that has gone into all aspects of it is outstanding. You are blessed to be in such a creative group of people, keep up the hard work. You seem to really know what you are doing here and and in the other vids, kudos.

I remember the tour of your boudoir lol, I would do a tour of mine but I have to do the spring cleaning first haha.

Our Beastie is being sold? I really hope the buyer knows what a piece of legend they are buying!


Jarring, I'm so sorry, I had an image in my mind of your lamp with a huge display of flowers and being in a conservatory lol.

Jane that is a wonderful piece. Looks like an antique. I would have it appraised before doing anything to it. An antique in its original condition can be worth a hell of a lot more than one that has been touched in any way.

Night.....please don't panic, I pretty much know my antiques

This is a repro.....so all's good. Every day genuine 'brown' furniture is disappearing. Good solid stuff that was made for the general market, being replaced with flat pack rubbish. *spits*.
So now, my household furniture is being, piece by piece, replaced with the good solid stuff but brought bang up to date, or made a little different to fit in with the architecture of the houses we live in.
Remember too, there are many pieces of furniture out there that are a couple of hundred years old which are worth thousands and are decorated/painted and not a bit of wood can be seen. It's just history repeating itself.




Unless you live in a traditional Victorian/Regency house, the piece as it was, just wont look right in a modern 20th century house, and would be destined for the bonfire. Up-cycle it and it will fit in a modern home thus saving it. I look at what I do as fighting back against the flat pack, and in my own small way getting people to use their imaginations.

This solid piece of furniture.....


Now looks like this.....


and this.....


Like this......


I now have a unique living room which has decent, solid bits of furniture in it.
I'm not trying to persuade you in any way. Just trying to show how I'm 'rescuing' furniture.


Here's a beautiful Antique Italian piece of furniture inits ORIGINAL condition

passport2design.com...



Contemporary Italian furniture boasts mostly modern characteristics – clean lines, little embellishment, bold colours and glossy finishes, but this wasn’t always the case. In Classical times, Italian furniture was very ornate (almost overly ornate) and in order to disguise the lack-lustre wood used for most pieces (soft pine, beech and poplar), artists began painting elaborate scenes on furniture in gold leaf and vibrant colours.
Architectural Digest published an article on painted Italian furniture and I found myself staring slack-jawed at the slideshow before my eyes.

Glad you know your antiques. Whew! I wouldn't want you to find out you painted something and it lost thousands of dollars in value. Man that would suck!! LOL

I love antique furniture and have dark wood reproductions in my house. I think it looks classy and warm. But that's just me. My house is a mix of things I have thrown together. You will find antiques and reproductions as well as dragons, mermaids, faeries, swords and many whimsical items. Big vases of silk flowers that look real. People always say are those real? Hell, I could never afford that many real flowers unless they were from my garden. LOL I also have lots of green plants, real ones.
