The Aubusson High Boy!

I literally spent all day long working on this guy…But, wow…I think it was worth all my time…He is beautiful! It took me about 3 days just to figure out what color to go with…(thanks Nan and Joni  for your input on that subject)…I really think picking the right color is the hardest part of the entire process, especially when it’s not for yourself…you have to think Neutral…but, you love color…what to do? what to do?…even half way thru, I was still wondering if I would be happy with the color…once, the paint dried, though, and I added the wax, I was sold…and once I put on the dark wax…well, that’s when he really showed how magnificent he was!  He is all finished and ready for a new home…

About The Old Cypress House

I paint...I love to paint...I have always painted...I like to take something old and make it new again...with paint! 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!

    It’s beautiful!! I remember the color to be a deeper blue. Do you think the lighting makes it look so muchlighter?

    And what are you asking? It would look nice in my bath if I block the door going into the hall. : ) Mom
