Cherubs on Cribs

Here you can see the results of a few days of work on the cribs; I have been working as fast as I can, until late at night to get this work done in time for their immediate use!
So far so good, I am not behind shedule yet...!

Baby Cribs with Cherubs And Roses

I have been comissioned to paint the outer end pieces for two baby cribs, for two baby girls yet to arrive, although they are expected quite soon....We are all hoping they wait to get here until after the cribs are all painted. I am working as fast as I can...

I can fit three of the four pieces on my work soon as I complete one, I can get the fourth one going too.

Clock Painting

I painted the frame around this clock to match the fabric you see below.....
This is something I was able to fit in, while making good progress on the floorcloth. I also had a lot of the same shade of blue paint available from the floorcloth painting!
Perfect timing!! (haha!)(Get it?)

The result is charming, and reminiscent of enamel, batik or French Provincial fabric.

Compass Rose Floorcloth

Here the floorcloth is almost completed...I got a lot of work done today....

After dinner I fooled around with it a little, and I know that tomorrow I will be able to tweak it a few times and start varnishing it.

It looks really good,; I think the ''starry sky'' part is pretty cool!

Completed floorcloth, trimmed, on the ground outside, and ready to deliver!

Back To Compass Rose Floorcloth

Here you can see a few pictures during the not yet completed process of painting this latest floorcloth...

Adding the silver makes a big difference...

When the floorcloth is in place on the floor, in an rather low light entrance foyer, the silver is going to really pick up the light that is available and shine!

Small Peony Floorcloth

This is a MINI floorcloth! A mere 18''x 24'' , it will be a sort of "Door Mat" just inside patio doors.

More Pictures From Restaurant Project

Here are images of the completed wall painting .

Its really cheerful and smart looking...and it looks very nice at night. The lighting in this are is great to show off the saturated colours...its very inviting.

There is one more phase in this project: This metal screen is going to be covered with my painted fabric.
(Some of the solid walls,door and window reveals, and the trellis you can see partially painted, will also be finished up, later this week, by the house painter.)
So keep checking in to see the fabric being painted, and how it all looks together!

Restaurant Painting Project

Here is some fun! Look at these great colours!
This is a back patio type ''room'', in a very nice local restaurant, in Sarasota. The smart Mid Century Modern feel and colour of the exisiting decor elsewhere in the building was the starting point for this look.

This wonderful vermillion exterior wall was already painted: and some inspiration for the new colour scheme.

This wall is still in progress:
more tomorrow!!!

Here is the same wall before I painted it, with the design drawn in chalk.

Here is how the room was before I started; certainly rather restrained, most would agree.
