Hi everyone,
I wanted to give you a peek of what I have been up to these days. Lots of custom orders, so I really do feel like I am painting....painting....painting!! The heat has been almost unbareable here and with a quite dated central air system, I have relocated my studio to the downstairs which now is giving me new ideas for a permanent move! Seems like the summer is flying by! It always goes too fast! I hope you enjoy taking a peek at what I have been up to!

20 signs! Completely hand cut, hand painted and embellished with crystal rhinestones!
Would love to do french sayings. If you have any ideas, please let me know, I would love to hear them!

        I decided to do " Happily Ever After" for my webiste too! Wouldn't it be wonderful!
We can all use a does of Happily Ever After!

I  will also be adding this week, custom name signs to my website.I loved working on this one. I need more hours in a day!  It will be available in two sizes. Again, hand cut and hand painted. I love working on a soft pale blue background. I must give credit to my husband Michael who is the one with his magic saw and meticulious eye that cuts all these pieces! He is amazing and can build anything!

A vintage tray table came to life! Another custom piece I really enjoyed working on!

Roses and Peonies and Birds!

Now for my French Shoes...Marie's Slippers?

Embellished with rhinestones for a touch of sparkle!

As you can see.....I have been painting from sun up till sun down! I still have more and promise to post again soon! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit me. I hope to see you all soon!

DEBI!!!!!! WOOOWOOWWWW! I was not at my computer all day yesterday, due to being out with my husband ANTIQUING...and dreaming of course! What a lovely surprise to see you come by and then to come and see what you have been up to! You are the best, simply the best....I cannot even begin to say how much your art just lifts me off the ground! You are on my list of must haves, you know that, don't you? I have been painting some vintage pieces white for my studio of Shabby Chic d├ęcor, but the amount of time it takes to make all those roses, birds, shoes, oh dear. I am wanting to do a post on artists, and may I include you with your art work dearest? Please let me know as I plan on doing this in the next several weeks. Oh, I am so thrilled to see you come back!

I know we get so busy, but it really is charming to see you stop by and come to see what you are up to! HEY! I was at Barnes and Noble bookstore yesterday and I happened to pick up a ROMANTIC HOMES magazine.....and who do I see advertised on a page along with other great artists...I nearly yelled out, "I KNOW DEBI COULES!" I saw your logo and name and everything!!! You are the real deal, Debi! Oh, you just inspire me....
