Persian Libby Fresco

This is our latest Fresco which was inspired by the paintings at the Sistine Chapel. This painted plaster painting will still need a frame and a home, but still a great feeling to complete.

Our next painting is something that I have dreamed about several times, so I cannot ignore it. I hope to take a cue from the great Norman Rockwell.

Learning from Wiliam Cochran

I had the opportunity to meet a Master of Trompe l’oeil, William Cochran. Thanks to the Chicago Institute of fine finishes, a small group came to meet, listen and learn some new painting techniques, correct some bad habits, learn some new ones, see color and light differently and appreciate the right paint brushes for the right job. William has some amazing art work, has a great ability to teach and loves what he does. From his community bridge project, to small murals, now painting with glass, William is a true inspiration of following a dream and bringing a vision to life. I hope we meet again.

Now we just need to find some new mural jobs to put to use these new skills. Any one have any ideas?

What to Do with Plaster Gone Bad

We just got a call from a customer to help with their painting and Faux finishing. When we arrived at their home we found a kitchen that had cost more that both of my cars together. It was beyond stunning. The walls however needed help. Colors were off, there was standard drywall, stucco, and some type of broken/rough plaster scattered throughout the room. In trying to save money, we painted everything one color and are glazing it with a 2 tone color wash to pick up the colors from the wood cabinets and the granite counter. What was thrown together is now actually appearing to have been planned!With the cabinets a wormy chestnut the rough plaster and stucco actually look very well together-I never would have though of that.

We next get to fix some foundation cracks, paint bedroom closet doors, paint a family room, paint 2 kids bedrooms, then figure out what type of murals we will paint in the rooms for the kids. Fun job, great people to work with.

Now Accepting Credit Cards for Painting?

After looking to other companies for some of their success, ways they are different etc, one thing that glared was the acceptance of credit cards. We took some surveys from customers and found they would more likely pay with a credit card than check.

It seems kind of silly on one hand but then again, I have reward programs on all of my business and personal cards so might as well take advantage of them!
