It’s a Monday.

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!
