Here is a smattering of the work I did for approximately 5 years before the fall of the real estate and construction markets. Every wall or garage door was a brand new "blank sheet of paper" waiting to be transformed into something creative. Doing the faux metalic copper garage doors was my favorite. I did a few interior surfaces using the same technique.
~ Copper-Metalic Look Vinyl Garage Door, popular in St George area.
~ My favorite: Metalic look inside panels, custom mixed dark painted borders.
~ Leather-Look Fauxed and Glazed Wall.
~Exterior Metalic looks used inside.
~ Mural at the end of a stairway, ongoing "arched windows" on side wall.
~ Rose-Colored Faux and Glazed Ceiling, dropped down 24" with a Painted Rose & Butterfly Border.
This was a fun time in my life....which came to an abrupt hault a year ago. Now people are more concerned with paying the mortgage than decorating these palatial homes. I have tried to start a non-profit business, doing this kind of painting for low-income families. I felt like it would be a wonderful thing to come home to for people who are living at a survival level only, who could never imagine extras like this. In this type of work, the money was one form of payment, the joy and satistaction of the clients was another, the best, form of payment. Children's rooms and murals were a favorite thing to do.
When I get my second wind, I may try to get this off the ground again.
