"Just Not A Good Day Unless It Is A Creative One"

My latest created design,
botanic garden theatre, altar~shrine,
built from salvage woods. Antique with 100 year old wood,
embellished with salvage drawer pulls for to use of 
roof top finials.

Backdrop wall is artist papered, with vintage French 
ephemera book pages. Artist weathered with a decay
feeling of centuries old. 

I paint stain in a wash of tones, using a plastering technique
 I developed for this hauntingly aged look.
Distressed in all the right kind of rightness that
 touches the edge of my soul. 

Artistic accents

Ready to hang

Layers of old

French Ephemera Backdrop

Barn Swallows

Created with salvage barn wood, Cartapesta,
wire, twigs, and vintage book ephemera art.

Wall Hanging

13" 1/2 height x 4" 3/4 width

 Cartapesta Nest and Eggs
Hand molded and hand painted eggs.

The swallow builds a cup nest from mud pellets in
barns or similar structures.They feed on insects 
in flight.
There are cultural references to the barn swallow
in literary and religious works due to both its
 living in close proximity to humans and
its annual migration.

Oh, your creativity is endless... all your ideas, growing out of deepest thoughts in poetry, Doré, your journey has just startet. I once postet you in my right sidebar as one of the most inspiring artists to me. You still are, and I am happy to know your blog. As our house is falling apart and little catastrophies happen here (well, we will manage), I am so glad to be able to visit your blog - you give so much to this world with your energy.
Have a wonderful day, your friend Méa

Good Morning Dear Dore,
I have been looking for a beautiful creative piece for my living room near my old vintage bird house and porch post. This wonderful Carapesta Nest piece is going to be great for this spot. I just purchased it in you ETSY shop.
Thank you for your creative heart. I cannot wait to get this and find that perfect spot for it. I will give you a shout out when I hang it in my living room. I love your creative soul. So happy to have a piece of your beautiful artwork.
