My apologies for missing a few days here. Lots going on, so little time to sit and post. The good news is, I finished the 3 black pieces of furniture I had been working on, and my client gave me a 4th piece to do. She is also contemplating having me design a faux headboard for her bed, to be painted directly on the wall. I am reaching some options now. I only took pictures of one of the black bureaus because the many drawers were all out of the 2nd piece for transport and I did not want to put them all back in to photo and then have to take out to put in my car. I will take a photo of this piece when I return to the client’s house next week.
Had I look at this pic before I returned the furniture, I would have noticed that bare wood spot showing to the left of the top drawer…where the drawer does not close flush. I had the black paint w/me when I returned the furniture, so touched it up on the spot.This piece is only slightly distressed, as the client did not want a lot of the finish to be removed. I also added a finish coat of wax.
Now… onto a new topic. Last night I attended a Life Drawing session at my friend, Tasha Cough’s studio in Jamaica Plain. (MA for those of you out of state…near Boston). Tasha has been kind enough to keep me on her email list about these monthly sessions for the past several months…even though I had not attended any until last night. I had not done any Life Drawing since my art school days…back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, so I was a bit hesitant! Well, I had a great time! Met some wonderful artists and enjoyed a very relaxed, friendly atmosphere. It was very enjoyable to do this type of sketching, since it had been so many years! Tasha is not only a decorative painter, but a wonderful artist. Please visit her Fancypaints website to view some of her work. To meet Tasha and see more of her work, Tasha will be part of the annual Jamaica Plain Open Studios, September 29-30th this year. Thanks Tasha, for a fun evening!
