B.C. Nature Artist Cathy Davis
How it's Done...................
These old wooden paddles are well worn and weathered by the sun and waters of British Columbia. They are sometimes found abandoned....in a shed at the cabin......or waiting to be rescued at a garage sale.
I start by giving the paddles and oars a light sanding before painting them, leaving the handles natural to expose the beautiful silvered wood. An original design is then painted on the blade of the paddle. When completed they are coated with a clear acrylic finish,
this protects as well as making them easy to wipe down when needed.
