I do not consider myself a painter but I do love to use paint. I play with it in journals a lot and I use it on fabric so I am quite comfortable using paint. I wasn't intimidated to apply for the Explore Waterloo Region picnic table painting. So glad that I went for it and was accepted. I went with a crazy quilt idea as Waterloo Region has a long tradition of quilting. I went with cheerful and bold colours as is typical of me. I painted it last week through the sweltering heat. ugh The table will be placed at a local restaurant. I hope it is one that that I like so that I can go there and eat at my table! The table will be auctioned off in the fall. I hope it goes to a good home.
