Art by Dore...Rusty French Urn

Hello friends, here is "FRENCH IRON URN Flea market ROSES" one of a number of pieces I have painted for my shop, I may take and list it on my ebay site or whole sale it to another dealer. I have done a number of creative pieces for many Southern California shop owners and ebay. I am always surprised, and excited when there are new orders placed. I am a self taught artist and schooled in graphic arts that led to being a publisher before I became an interior designer. I have a dramatic artful passion for the euro flea market style and love racking my brain developing unique art and the use of eye catching color or the lack of color :) Each piece is a one-of-a-kind hand painted mixed media in acrylics an enamels all original and signed by me.

I love to paint all my art on antique wood pieces and my framed art on the back side of paneling, the rough side of course. This is because it looks like the grain in canvas and it will never tear, it also has a wonderful vintage look and feel to it. The frame is made from vintage wood and home moldings salvaged from remodeling jobs, or just another great find. I love designing and creating art, as well as creating the next thing with my own hands. I am often asked, you built this, or you painted this, I really do not think my work is that special it's just something I have to do, it makes living a creative journey for my daughter Hannah and I.
12x12 painting size, with frame 21x21 depth of frame 1"1/2

I hope this inspires you to pick up a brush and start painting.
