...seeing spots

,

I'm seeing spots today...and painting them, too. 


This is an old Pennsylvania German style of folk art painting. It might not appeal to everyone, but I really, really like it. It's so folky!


Although I have seen these spots on furniture, as well as walls, it was this book by Nancy Braithwaite that really pushed me to paint. This talented designer used spots on the walls of her Atlanta home.


Her spots are larger than mine as she was painting a wall, while I painted a smaller mantle. It was a fun project...it did not take long...and the size and spacing is random. You really can't mess it up, so it was just plain fun. 


Of course Mr. MW has yet to see it...and Annie started singing Cruella DeVille when she saw it. But me? I like it...but then, I adore polka dots!

 Still have to figure out what to put in the interior space. It's very much a work in progress, but I thought I'd share as I go. Sometimes you just need to change things up!

Anyone else seeing spots today?

Enjoy the day,
Robyn
