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! "If you hear a voice inside of you say 'you cannot paint', by all means, paint...and that voice will be silenced" ~ Vincent Van Gogh View all posts by The Old Cypress House

    It’s so pretty – it’ll go fast. How was Madison’s graduation? Theresa and Rich got here today.  Rich thought he might drive to San Antonio and visit with RJ a while, but changed his mind.  RJ got a job with the basketball team for 3 months.  Theresa is going to downtown Houston for a cooking class that came as a bonus when she bought a stove. I was upstairs with the upright vacuum today….was bringing it downstairs in my right hand with an armful of folded clothes and holding a can of cleanser in my left hand.  I had flip-flops on and went sliding down the stairs.  My left leg got bent under me (I was afraid to move it) cleanser all over the place and I hit the back of my head on the stairs….thank goodness they have carpet on them.  I was cuckoo for a while and thought I was gonna pass out….now I’m stiff all over again.  So glad to be going to therapy tomorrow.
