2016 ~ PAINT, PAINT and more PAINTING!

This year was a big year for my works on canvas, both toy and pet portraits.  I was in four shows, sold 7 paintings and 4 commissions.  Woo hoo!  But more importantly, this was the year I got a new studio assistant.  He's quite useless but damn cute!  

A huge thank you to all my former clients, friends and family, for all the referrals.  I couldn't have done it without you. Let's see what next year brings!

FAUST GETS A MAKEOVER!

Faust in Downtown Providence gets a makeover that takes it from cold to cozy.  This included staining and installing wood veneer paneling...first time for everything.  As well as gold/brass highlights in the trimming and ceiling. 

Check it out and order the schnitzel!

Magic!

Client - "Can you paint fake brick to match existing old brick wall?"  

Me -  "Sure!"  

This was a fun challenge.  I knew it wouldn't look as realistic if I just painted on the existing flat surface so first I created the brick and grout texture.  Then primed and brushed multiple layers of paint and glaze to achieve the look of brick.  

It was a pleasure working with Denise at Wickford Kitchen & Bath on this project.


Some other paint projects the required me to match existing finish to hide or enhance the space.
