Yee-Haw! Photo Booth Decorations

We had a rip-roarin’ time at the New Year’s Eve-Eve party this year! It was a patriotic western theme and I was asked to paint these boots as part of the decorations. They are about 4.5 ft tall and made of OSB plywood. Not the best surface to paint, but it was fun!

Throwback Thursday! Fire Safety Trailer from 2003

Was looking through some old pictures this week and I came across this job that I did for the City of Bellefontaine’s Fire Department back in 2003. Wow! 13 years ago, can you believe how time flies? As some have said, time flies when you’re having fun, but as frogs say, Time’s fun when you’re […]

New Mural Design for Advertisement

Recently have been working with a sign painter who will be referring me for murals! I designed this logo to paint on his wall to advertise my services. I’ll post another pic of the painting in progress, but here’s the design: I can’t wait to do this one!

Mural Work – Scripture and Ampersand

Recently commissioned to do this work – I can’t disclose the client. I’d say this was more of a trade than a paid job. However, I think it turned out quite well. Sketching the layout…  In progress…  Detail of some of the letters.  Love the “L”! The ampersand
