I paint with an intensely personal affair
with a pale patina...
Making the most of a French seasonal
With days beginning to grey, no matter what
your celebration is, there is always beauty
to be had.
I am passionate about salvaged pieces, and
the patina of life I give them.
Yes, this chair once covered in dark stain has
taken on the paints and a pale age
I've touched it with.
I never negotiate with a piece or
over think its finish, I just let it
speak to me.
I often will not replace the covered arm pads,
I love finishing its empty space with a
casual painted relaxed age;
making this French chair feel less formal.
It's important that it feels authentic and not
forced in its finish and as worn as I can
get it until it says, "I am finished."
Salvage And patina
Dried hydrangeas in their silvery grey greens
