Bavarian Favorite Flowers Chest with Bun Feet
This unique chest is beautifully made
and measures 25" long x 11.5" high x 12.5" wide x 8"
deep with four bun feet that make it very authentic looking. It is
painted in my favorite Bauernmalerei style of German wet-in-wet with
sponging and Kleister techniques using all of my favorite flowers!
This chest will become your newest Bavarian heirloom! The inspiration
for the chest came from the
chest (below) that I painted in 1996 for the Decorative Arts Collection
of the National Society of Decorative Painters as a Past President's
Award (by past president Betsy Thomas). It is now on display in the SDP
museum in Kansas that was recently opened in a new location. The German
"A Merry Heart Doeth Good Like a Medicine".
