Happy Paint Party Friday #23

Happy Paint party Friday! I'm thrilled to say I made some positive headway this week as far as my chairs go. Four have been primed and painted a first coat. Three have artwork on them with only one left to go. A few more coats of varnish are needed.
Two need paint touch ups, or should I say change ups!  That's the unfortunate part about being self taught artist...sometimes it's hit and miss. My work often needs tweaking until I'm satisfied. Sometimes it doesn't hit the mark and gets discarded!

Knowing  I have to live with these chairs makes me slightly more critical, forcing me to make many changes along the way. Still not satisfied with the first chair  I'm redoing the legs yet again!  I've decided I  prefer plainer chair legs.
I've been hunting for  a small black square table for my kitchen for almost two years now! I've put a kibosh on that, instead   I'm going to paint my old round one a daring color!! I am pretty excited because I think it will make a notable difference.
 Do you change your mind like your underwear? I sure do!! Even at a restaurant I let everyone order before me, afraid I might change my mind when I hear what others choose.  Yet in other ways I am extremely decisive and know exactly what I love and want! But you can be sure it always has something to do with whimsy and color!!!  Hope you all have a great weekend!! Make sure to check out all the other participants!

I love how you've painted this chair! It's like any painting though, it's hard to know when it's finished and when to stop. Quite often I have to stop myself going back to old paintings and changing them. I could go on for ever! Sometimes you just have to let it be and start a new one with your new ideas. :) xx

Can't wait wait to see what you do with the table. When you say daring, I believe it! DH picks on my all the time about not being able to make a decision and stick with it.

Nothing wrong with changing your mind ;0) I love how your chairs have turned out. They remind me of the canal boats they have such decorative painted items too. Dxx
