I do indeed, paint everything........ It's how I learn & practice techniques.
I use many techniques in the process of transforming old things into new (and sometimes new into old) and teach painting technique classes at The Gift Box in historic Alton, Illinois. The 2019 classes can be found here.
Hope you enjoy looking! If you have any questions about the techniques used - just contact me.
And then... go find something to paint.... it's fun :)
