Geaux Tigers!!

Working on building up my inventory after the Christmas rush…Here are the first 3 new Tiger Eyes that are ready to go…





About The Old Cypress House

Mother-wife-friend-artist...I love to paint...I have always loved painting...I like to take something old and make it new again...with paint! Actually, I just like making stuff...DIY-that should be my initials! The Old Cypress House got started with a single plank of cypress wood given to me by my brother. I painted Tiger Eyes on it (LSU Tiger Eyes, to be exact...Geaux Tigers!). From that moment on, I couldn't do enough of them. I ventured into Fleur de Lis, Jazz guys...whatever anyone suggested. Then my husband helped tear down a cypress house that was built in 1889 and brought me home loads and loads of more wood, including the old cypress windows that were in the house...I could hardly contain my excitement! The possibilities are endless. This blog is going to showcase my work. It will mostly be on cypress...but, I'm sure I'll venture into other areas of art projects. I have so many ideas spinning around in my head. I hope you enjoy my work. If you see something you like or have an idea, please let me know...I'll be in my shop!

    I am interested in tiger eyes to hang above my nursery window. I would need it to be 3.5-4 feet long and the space between the ceiling and window is only 14inches. Can I get a quote?

      Hi Kirsten, that size sounds just about the normal size I make…they usually run about $130-$175, depending on if you want it to be just a plain black and gold one or one with purple or one that is mixed media with the texture and fleur de lis, paw prints, etc included….I have one available right now that is about 42 x 7 1/2 for $130 (black/gold) and one just a little larger for $150 (black/gold/purple) Or I can make one however you like 🙂 Just let me know…thanks for your interest, Colleen
