Gorgeous New-to-Me Hand-painted Bench

In the art world, Donna Dewberry is a well-known, extremely talented one-stroke artist.

Her roses and ribbons are swoon-worthy.



Several years ago, one of my sisters, also a one-stroke artist, won a very beautiful bench that was hand-painted by Donna Dewberry, herself.

Fast forward several years to today. My sister is downsizing and no longer wants the bench.



She generously gifted it to me!

Honestly, it is stunning in its beauty.




Hubs sprayed it with a clear protective spray and we are going to keep it in the yard, for now.





Come fall, we'll bring it into the house.



It's soooooo lovely and my heart is filled to the brim with gratitude.



HAVE YOU HEARD OF ONE-STROKE PAINTING?

... Hi Susan....
Your gift from your sister is Gorgeous.....I love it...
The decorative painting is like what we call Folk Art in Australia. I once took lessons in this art form and made some nice key racks to hang n the wall.
