We finally got a round table!!! I have always loved the ambiance of sitting at a round table. My husband got this for our 45 th wedding anniversary! This was a good reason to finish some placemats I started 6 years ago.
Pictures were copied from 2 volumns of Gibson art that I have from Uncle Paul. Copyright 1902
I had done 4 and then gave up the project because it was very difficult for me to work fast enough to apply such a large piece of paper to the wood mats and make them smooth without wrinkles!
So, I have more "know how" and decided I needed to complete the series.
I still have 2 to do.
I choose the pictures for men and women to view!
Hope you enjoy my choices and love to have you come to dinner some time! supplies wood placemat

Art has become for me "therapy". I can celebrate happy occasions or work through sad or difficult times by creating art. I love creating special art for others. I often use old family pictures in my pieces and feel good about giving them birth again. I love to laugh,am very sentimental, and cry more happy tears than sad ones. Loyality, honesty, and sharing good things with others is important to me. I enjoy seeing all the new art of artists friends and am learning something new every day!
Laughing makes better wrinkles on your face!
