Quote of the Day, as an art piece

•April 15, 2015 • 2 Comments

IMG_7635 I found this quote, and I love it.  I decided to take it further than just my chalkboard.  I had this cork board, which I used as my surface.  And I had this antique pattern making book for women’s dresses.  One of the pages showed how the style has changed over the last hundred years or so, and it kind of felt like it represented the constantly moving target of keeping up with the latest trend. Perfect for this.

Close-ups of Ireland mural

•April 13, 2015 • 2 Comments

I realized the photos I posted yesterday didn’t have any close-ups.  Of course, you can click on any photo on this blog and it will enlarge them, but this is easier.  The mural took 6 days to complete.

My client went to Ireland and wanted the feel of it in her backyard.
