"THE GREATROOM" As you can see, we love the country rustic look! I sat in the opening between the dining room an this room and painted this picture. The fireplace is the backdrop for many family and group pictures. I looked for a long time to find just the right rug for this room. I thought I might braid one myself, but about as big a rug as I would get was 5'X7'. I carried the framed painting over the mantel home on the bus in my younger married days! I decided I wanted to turn the print into an oil painting years ago, so i just painted over in oils! It worked! My husband built our home with his own hands, even the windows, doors, wiring and plumbing. He is not a professional builder, just an ordinary guy who thought he could do it , and he did! Didn't have to have all the many inspections that they have now days!
Hello, my name is Marlynne Joy Snare (pronounced Marilyn) and I am really excited to be jumping into this new world of "blogging". I call myself a "Folk Artist" and enjoy creating with fabric, paint, wood and all types of natural materials. It will be fun to share some of these inside and outside the house projects with you too!
