A lovely client from my mural days contacted me to paint a project on her 30 ft ceiling. I had left scaffolds behind a few years prior, and was hesitant to undertake such a daunting project, but then she offered to have a level built just for me, by her carpenter. How could I refuse? She wanted 5 cherubs, representing her 5 children, now grown, and the clouds needed to be tones of brown and gold, at her decorator's request. I called in the help of a friend, Sharon, and we added some detailed stenciling around the border as well, and we all were pleased. Once we were completed, her carpenter tore down the level (an actual floor) he built, and we were able to finally see the project from 30 ft below. It was amazing.
But she has ruined me for ceilings forever. How can I accept another ceiling job unless they are willing to build me a floor? It made the project seamless and a joy to complete.:-)
My hubbie checking things out. He is always conscious of my safety!

One of the projects that give me the most JOY during the holidays is commissioned portraits that are LIFE CELEBRATIONS collages. I wanted to capture a personality which would involve their likes, their lyrics, their family, their memories and all that makes them who they are. It's difficult to think of combining all of that in one canvas, but my heart is to bring together enough of their life and memories to touch their heart.
The challenge for me as I work on them,
