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.

FEATURED ARTIST AT THE COLLABORATIVE

Well, it's been fun as July's featured artist at The Collaborative.  Starting with night of music with The Red Pennys...always fantastic!  Then a great opening with lots of familiar and unfamiliar faces.  What a hoot, and it's not over yet because the show is up until the end of July.  

Folks who support local artist should be rewarded, so prices have been are lowered on all paintings for the month of July.

A little glam in California!

Back in California for my oldest and favorite client, Jennifer.  We've been wanting to transform this room for years, and the day(well, 9 really) finally came. I may add more detail on my next stint in Cali, but overall design is there.  

She loves it, and I love it.

For the walls, I used Ralph Lauren polished patina in a custom color to suit the space.  Then hand painted a floral pattern with wisteria, roses and birds.  I also applied the polished patina on the ceiling with a  different technique for an ombre, cloudy feel. 

*Special note...I couldn't have done it without the support of my hostesses with the mostestness(not a word, but I don't care), Noelle and Eric. Thank you!

IT'S ALL HAPPENING AT THE COLLABORATIVE!
