Paintpartyfriday! My old "boutique" art!

In the late 80's and early 90's I used to paint on wood and metal. I painted items for gardeners or garden lovers. This was before I began painting on canvas/paper. Items were sold or done by commission.
When looking at the quality of the pictures, you should know it was before I ever heard of a digital camera or a computer. These pictures were simply for my records of what I had completed.
I had so much fun!!!

Copper tub (commission)
Old wash tub!

3 rd view
White chair (commission)I have always loved flowers and was a pretty good gardener and was always planting, pruning, weeding. The plants I painted are the ones I had in the yard. While the style is "Folksie" I tried to be botanically accurate.
