Finished decking the halls in a very nice home nearby. The owner asked for an all glossy paint project, with a brush. There's something wonderful about having a brush in your hand.
This is the one end of the hall with two bedroom doors, four closet doors and all the trim.
Everything has been painted with two coats of Dover White High Gloss paint from Sherwin Williams.

It was an old paint roller with gravel hot glued onto it. When rolled onto the foam, it made sweet indentations for drybrushing.
The first arch was pieced together from individual stones and then realizing we had to do 10 arches we needed another plan.
The redwood was cut from a fence railing and stained. Pegs were added to hand sacks and other stage dressings. We did not want an arch in the stable, but a framed door, so part was cut away.
Other wise we think it looks pretty darn nice.

When they needed a logo to help promote their new weekly event called "Women of Excellence". We stepped up to the plate and gave it a swing. Here you see the finished log, but how did we get there? Let's take a look....
The first round of ideas was presented in three different directions.
The first a light contemporary,
the second classical and elegant and
the third was a more natural approach.
The classical version wasn't out yet but they didn't want it to look so "Old Fashioned". We went with two variations of color with corresponding floral elements. A simpler version of each was shown for use on letterhead or other limited color printing.
A fun successful project! You can visit the Abundant Life Ministry Center site for any information on their ministries.
