April arrived, set to be a busy month. Easter morning we were on a plane, flying out of Detroit, on our way to a big ship in the ocean, chaperoning our daughter and five friends during spring break. A year ago we were on our way to Mexico for my son’s spring break…
Milestones like this make me think back, way back…. when did my kids grow up?
It was busy the week before I left – multiple workshops, and I’d been working on completing this custom painted vanity for a client –
They wanted it similar to this piece I’d painted –
I used American Paint Company Voyage, and Stenciled with various APC colors, and sealed with APC Hardcoat and Topcoat Finish
The week off was a lovely change – the weather was perfect every day – I soaked in the vitamin D and much needed sleep
Even while away from work, I’d find myself noticing things – like this guy’s shirt that looked like a Monahan Botanical paper…
I was drawn to this designer – such artistic detail
Boy if I won the lottery…. 🙂
The week was a whirl – I got moving on a customer’s vanity – she wants a metallic finish with a wood grained look on the top
I’m about 2/3’s done…
I had to quote painting a 15 foot statue (she’s in parts) for a popular yearly music festival music – Electric Forest – held in Rothbury, Michigan.
If I get the job, they’d deliver her to my studio in a large crate – a crate full of body parts 🙂 How cool would that be? Would love to turn her into an earthy queen of the forest…
Some workshop photos…
This past week I received another customer ‘to do’ project… six chairs and two curios –
A black finish with some reveal is requested, trust that I REALLY tried to talk this client into a DIY project, but she wanted no part it. Looks like I need to get busy painting!
It’s good feeling to be back – until next time, happy painting!
