renew refresh recreate
with gold frame updated
my creativity now turns
to the painting
it needs some love & joy
my mind is a turning!

takes a break from
barking out the
picture window

big outdated gold frame
pretty but tired
refresh redo recreate

even with temporary accent
looking magical
what is really magical is
the plank woodwalls
painted with gesso
oh, i so love gesso
& rubbed with fingers
to add some detail
next - redo of the original painting
or something completely different
taking inspiration from
this framed vignette
& oh, Beatrix Potter
looking out the office
window of wonder
thinking - am i next?

to bee painted, glittered or both?

the doors
 replaced rotten old doors
 the new doors were way too new
for this ol'castle, & not joyful at all

painted to look old with
a splash of whimsical magic
they now create a portal to pergola space
that is one of our favorite "spots"
(next contstruction project - outdoor fireplace)
every one is happy

painted to be caution tape - no falling, please

the stripped awnings add a
kinda sidewalk cafe look to the outdoors
renew, refresh, redo, recreate
a moto always in play here
my photo skills were challenged
taking these pictures of the new doors
low inside light, glass, bright outside, glare,
 reflection of twinkle lights under pergola,
 reflection of tv, etc.
roxy always looks good!
