Originally I painted groups of furniture in a theme. I have made a Rufus Porter group, a Rooster group, and a Pennsylvania Dutch group.

Recently I have painted museum quality fine furniture as shown by the first two pieces.

If you have a furniture piece that you would like me to decorate, let's talk.
