The leaves were unfinished and would cause momentary guilt when large gatherings would sit down to eat....like over Labor Day.
I finally finished it this last weekend. Yay for me! I am posting pictures of it so you can see that I don't just paint on fabric but occasionally paint on wood or walls or whatever is in need of some attention.
I made up the botanical plants and flowers with some butterflies in the mix that span the entire length of the table; going around each end as well.
The width of the border is about 4". The table, without leaves can seat 6. With the 2 leaves we can get 8 in there; 10 if we squeeze and have enough chairs. Please put the left handed people together on one side.
The paints are acrylics and of course I only bought yellow, blue, red, and white. (If you have taken my QU classes or "in studio" classes, you know I have a thing about that!).
Once dry, three layers of sealer will keep the paints from chipping and wearing off with time.
Anyone for Thanksgiving at "Aerie"? There's room now at the table.
