Works on the table

I selected a few pieces to decorate and I choose one of my favourite motifs of inspiration, chinese landscapes, birds and flowers.

Two oriental boxes: I started already with the one on the right, inspired by a snuff bottle of my collection bought in China, I just love these kind of snuff bottles painted by the inside, they are amazing.

Another tray made by Maria Armanda. Happy me, from now and then I receive these lovely hand made pieces to decorate, now I have to decide which motif to paint,different from the one on the left, which gave me a great pleasure to paint, thank you Maria Armanda.

May be I will choose birds and flowers....

Or may be a chinese landscape like these one I painted years ago with tempera  on a real egg, duly emptied and cleaned ....
Also I decided to make a new border on this table, decorated last year, inspired by a tissue, in which I painted the decoration freehand over a black ground, I was luky with the result.

 I started with real silver leaf, then I will "age" it .

Birds or flowers to decorate these two side tables?

A delicate table I bought from David (David Iriarte) for my collection, I´m awaiting for inspiration to decorate it, but for the moment I keep it in my Neoclassic Room.

And a last lovely piece made for me by Maria Armanda. Don´t forget to visit her blog, she updated it with new pieces, I appreciate very much her work, she is improoving everyday. Thank you Maria Armanda for this new lovely piece of furniture, I know already I will enjoy very much to decorate it. I think I will decorate it also with chinese motifs in gold over dark blue. At the back you may see a chinese landscape painted with tempera over a wood panel painted by me in the years 80.

And to finish I made two photos dedicated to my new Followers - Spring Roses from my garden, and my miniature roses made with paper with accents of watercolour. Thank you for following my Blog.
