~~~~~LIFE MADE EASIER~~~~~ ONE COTTAGE SIGN AT A TIME

UPLOADING THIS PRETTY SIGN TONIGHT

Well...I do believe I hit pay dirt when I found the amazing slanted desk (see yesterday's Post below) I've blogged about over the past couple of days! I used it today while painting this charming Cottage Style Sign and now I'm absolutely in heaven! Even though I have yet to transform the desk with paint and artwork, I couldn't resist trying it out ahead of time!!! I can already tell I'm going to thoroughly enjoy using it in my studio...

I now understand completely why artists choose to paint on a slanted surface vs. a flat one! Not only was I able to SIT the entire time I was painting (I usually stand up, hovering over my work when painting a sign), I finished it free from the aches and pains associated with bending over for far too many hours!

More pretty Signs will be uploaded onto my WEBSITE over the next couple of days! The one shown above is going up this evening! It's one of my very favorite styles~the design was taken from the wrapper that bound authentic French Lace from the early 1900's...

Blessings to you as you discover the things that make your life easier (and pain free!)...Rebecca

Your sign is very pretty R. I would want one of those desk to write letters or send out cards for their given puposes. I think it would be much easier on the wrist as well as the eyes to have your work at the angle of your eyes natural state. Happy painting!!

Rebecca, The sign is beautiful. Your delicate roses make everything look more beautiful.

I need to find myself one of those slanted desk for smaller projects. Celeste's blog and studio is such a sourse of inspiration. Can you believe how clean and organized she is?

I'm hosting a giveaway stop by if you get a chance.

Oh, I stand up when I paint. I can't paint sitting down but oh my goodness, the aches and pains. Ouch!
