More Angel Love and a Pink Flamingo

Okay  so  at  the  end  of  this  week  I'm  off  for  my  final  show  of  the  season,  and  I  have  to  say  that  I'll   be  glad--I  am  burnt  out!!   I  had  to  make  one  more  angel  though--

And  I  had  one  more  chair  left,  and  that's  where  I  put  her--


But.... I  also  made  her  into  a  piece  of  wall art--

With  an   up-cycled   $1.00  frame  that  I  spray-painted  copper.  A  very  easy  peasy  with  a  lemon  squeezy!

And  remember  my  first  angel  that  started  it  all  that  I  showed  you  here?   Well,  she  was  meant  to  go  here--



I  love  my  little  group  of  angels  that  I'm  taking  with  me!

So  what  about  the  pink  flamingo?   Well   on  Kathy's  blog  Kluless,  she  mentioned  that  she  loved  flamingos  and  that  she  had  a  collection  of  them.   I  like  flamingos  too,  but  I  don't  really  collect  them,  but  I  do  have  a  couple,  and  one  in  particular  that  I  bought  years  ago  at  a  craft  fair  that  I  wanted  to  show  her.  I  really like  it.   So  Kathy--here's  my  favorite  pink  flamingo  (although  it's  a  bit  faded  with age)

I just can't get over how beautiful and wonderfully original these all are, I can't image you will come back home with any of them! They are all going to sell. They are going to add so much to the ambience of people's homes.

Serena said...

Your angel art is gorgeous!! I'll be very surprised if they don't sell.

And what a sweet flamingo!

Theresa said...

So Lovely and Sweet! Beautiful work D and wishing you LOTs of success on your upcoming show with hopefully...a few naps after:)

Micki said...

Love your work, that chair is stunning!!

I also love that flamingo you own, my 6 year old daughter is a HUGE fan of flamingo's although she has always called them "flingo's" lol ;)

Jeanne Nelson said...

Your newest angel is absolutely beautiful, and I love how you've place her on the chair! Wishing you a successful show, ... and then plenty of time to rest.

Marlene said...

Just gorgeous, your work should all find new homes, I wish you much success. Your angels are beautiful and I love the box, so original.

Buffy said...

Soooo Beautiful! Good luck at your show.

Ansota said...

Absolutely stunning Diane. I love everything you make. The chair, the box, the wall art ... everything is amazing! I am sure your show is going to be a great success!

WrightStuff said...

What adorable angels (and I absolutely love that flamingo - when my son was little he called them 'bingos'). I've been buying old frames to upcycle too. I wanted to put my art in, but almost all are completely the wrong size. Still, at least I have the perfect excuse to make more art!

Kathy said...

Oh, my. Absolutely breathtaking. I love that chair. Just fabulous.

Janet Ghio said...

Gorgeous chair--and your flamingo is so cute! Here's to a well deserved rest!!

Gloria said...

I love pink flamingo's. Your angels are really beautiful and I'm sure they'll go fast. Have a great day.

Healing Woman said...

I know you are so glad your shows are almost over for the year. Also, aren't you pleased that they were up this season. Hope the last one is the best. Great angels.

Joji said...

Love Love Love the chair.....Your talent just keeps on going like the energizer bunny.

Manon said...

Don't burn out yet...I want to see more! I love the angel box!

kluless said...

Last lap! I remember, back in the days we did the holiday bazzaars, that we would be so anxious for the season to start and then soooo happy to see it finished for the year! Time for some well-deserved rest.
I love your flamingo with the little legs dangling over the edge of the shelf!!

Elizabeth C. said...

They all look wonderful and very much in the holiday spirit! It is good to have the shows over & done with so you can focus on yourself and your family's celebrations over the next six weeks with no other obligations intruding. Good luck with your show (although I can't imagine you'll need it--nothing you do requires luck for it to sell!).

Your angels are so beautiful. I'm glad that chair is all decorated like that because I'd have an awfully hard time sitting in it what with that beautiful angel peering up from the seat. :)

Your angels are heavenly. Hope you are able to rest after your final show. Happy week ahead...

Andreja said...

Faboulous work.I instantly fall in love with the box with angel. I can't stop look at it. Great work!

Emelie said...

Even the mind gets tired, and not just tired from the art work, from the thoughts of what will the people want, how will they respond and do they want things for all year or more Holiday things, and it seems I revisited it in my head a lot.

You have wonderful things I know if I saw them at a sale I would be wanting, the artwork and the colors are so good, so right, and I know you have a mix of today and yesterday in your variety.

So in a few days you will be able to put your thoughts to what is just in your head to paint and create because you want to.

it will be a good fair, people are starting to really feel the hype of the season and want things.
