~Shabby, Vintage Furniture~
 ....that you don't need to dust! :) These two paintings are of furniture I currently own and have in my bedroom. Painted in acrylic on canvas to look distressed and aged, the paintings have a similar background color and a sweet daisy chain is painted around the edges of the deep canvas so they could be displayed as a set.

Each measures 9 X 12 X 1.5

“Spring Greens”
Lana Manis

For the first web show at Mavis and Mavis, I decided to create these whimsical works of art using vintage book covers. If you know my work, you know that I use antique and vintage books in many of my designs. I gathered several old cloth bound book covers, all in shades of green, and they became the backgrounds for my Spring Greens watercolors!

The torn edge watercolors are painted with artist grade paint on 140lb watercolor paper. The artwork is adhered to the cover. I drilled holes in the corners of the covers and added black wire hangers with curlicue embellishments. The covers range in size from 4 ½” x 7 ½” to 5 ½” x 8 ½”. Each piece is signed and dated on the front, as well as on the back along with the title.

I accept PayPal, check, and money order.

$35 each plus $5 shipping.
