Painted Window


About 500 years ago my parents asked me if I would paint this old window of theirs.  We have a quaint little cottage in the mountains of central Pennsylvania and my parents have spent the last 10 years or so fixing it up. It needed new windows so my Dad kept this one when he took the old ones out.  It has literally been sitting in our house for probably 3 years and I kept saying I was going to do it and never did.  Well this week I finally made time during Stafford's nap.  I like how it turned out.  I did it without a picture which I find challenging but I wanted it to look a little bit whimsical and not entirely "real".  

So here is the window before....


And After....



I hope they like it!!!  I'm sending it to KY with some friends who are at the beach for the week so they have no idea I actually painted it!  Hopefully it will be a good surprise.  I'm hoping to start  painting again once we move.  I was really happy with the paintings I did for Stafford's room and would love to start doing them as a business!

This is so pretty. Your parents are sure to be pleae with it, especially after waiting 500 years for it.

That's so funny and coincidental. I preface so many things with "about 100 years ago".

Have a great week.
