Sea Gypsy Buffet

By Mary Williamson Shades of Shabby, Artisan at Shades of Shabby in Palmetto, GA.

I'd like to introduce you to Sea Gypsy. She was brought to me by a friend who renovates houses, and this poor girl grew up in Georgia with her last years spent in a garage, never used and neglected. When I saw her she was so dirty and her left leg was torn right off the base, broken away like she hit a hard rock while sailing. I envisioned her to be grand like the sea and her lost soul like a gypsy came calling to me. When I started to paint her I wasn't quite sure the direction I was going but like a canvas she came to life as the colors were added and blended. She is beautiful now and will be in her forever home this week. Thank you for loving Sea Gypsy.
