Weekend Project #2: I found this little cupboard on the side of the road about a year ago. Thank goodness I was driving the truck when I spotted it! It goes next to our front door and it was just plain brown which was ok, but not great. A coat of glossy black is much better!

It has been a LONG time since I have picked up a paintbrush. Today I was in the mood so decided to paint a picture of Farrah our Airstream. It was fun to get back to this kind of art. It is especially nice when the house is quiet and I have a good chunk of alone time to just dabble.

*Details*

Today is dress rehearsal and picture day! Avery got her costume, make-up and hair done and we high tailed it to school. Mary and I finished up adding finishing touches to the set this morning. It feels so great to have this project all done and to have it look so bright, colorful and cheerful! Seeing the kids in costume this morning was a real teaser for the play. I am looking forward to seeing the whole production from start to finish. It has been such a fun experience. Mary, wadda ya say we do it again next year?!

*Colorful Mushrooms*

We are in the midst of the school play. For the last two weeks my good friend Mary and I have been having a great time painting the sets for the stage. It is in an Irish theme so Mary designed a backdrop of rolling hills, stone walls, a castle, and to top it all off, a glittering rainbow. I will be posting more of that later but for today, here are some of the colorful mushrooms I painted on foam core. They will be scattered around on the hills. This has been an all consuming project so my next few posts are likely to be on this subject. With the luck-o-the-Irish, we will be done by the end of next week!

Painting the Powder Room

Ms. Samba in Sac had this adorable picture hanging in her kids bathroom. She wanted a little something extra to make it pop so about two months ago I sketched an idea on the wall. Basically it was an extension of the picture so the tree branch spread across the wall. I was in Sacramento last weekend and had a chance to finish the process by painting the sketch to match the picture. It is pretty darn cheerful if I have to say so myself. The Samba kiddos seemed to like it too.

No picture today because it would have only been a solid black frame. The glow in the dark paint didn’t work. Jeff says that if I would shine a flashlight on it, it would glow for a few minutes. Unfortunately, I have no time for that such thing… Oh well…
