That came out very nicely Christy. You have a good eye for color and painted it nicely all around.

grin I'm glad you both like it! I've been working on it off and on for weeks now....I'm sort of a perfectionist....although like I said I do need to do a few small touch ups.

Thanks Di--Painting like that is so therepeutic to me.....it relaxes me. Mom got a statue too. A boy and girl on a log...and now she's saying that she wants me to paint it too. lol

I figured I couldn't mess up too much, the statue was only $14.99 on sale.

I almost bought a gnome riding on a turtle's back a while back it was just plain grey resin,, I was thinking IF I get that I could paint it,, It was huge too,, it was 21"high and very detailed,, I regret not getting it now It would have been a great winter project boohoo

You could go with any color that you would like with blue. Yellow is the complimentary color for blue. You can go with golden colored wood. White looks crisp with blue. Are you talking about painting wooden furniture? Or upholstering stuff? Or just throwing a few pillows around?

Toposh, I'd go with a brown. Blue and brown look great together. Works for Tiffany....
