Just a quick check in here. I needed a break so I am sitting here with a cool ice tea.
I have several special order signs I am working on. I usually work on a few at a time. When I have to wait for maybe the base paint to dry on one I can work on the lettering of another.
Here is the Red Rose painting sign in progress, it is painted on a cabinet door. The sun was shining on part of it but I was in a hurry to send it to the customer and get some feedback.
Red roses are particularly difficult with my style of painting as I normally highlight with white and when you do that on red you end up with pink roses instead of red. But I had a brainstorm and figured out another method which was rather a ‘duh’ moment once the light bulb clicked on.
A close up of the roses..
The other sign is pink roses with a creamy crackled background. The customer on this one change her mind on size so this one will go up on my website. It is 15” x 15” and I will leave it as is, then whomever orders it can put what wording they wish over Cottage.
This one will say “Paradise” and go over a doorway.
I also have some geranium signs that have been ordered but I am just getting those base painted. I will share them as soon as there is something other than bare paint to see.
Back to painting for me!
