…maria’s union

jack! Maria emailed me to see if I would custom paint a Union Jack on her dresser.

It was the perfect shape, size & wood for a Union Jack piece and reminded me of what is in Reid’s room.

She wanted it in all blues – which I was happy to do. Here it is in process:

As tedious as all this taping may look, there was something so soothing and refreshing about it. It made me think about how I always wish I were a good painter growing up, but was always very embarrassed to express myself that way because I didn’t think I was any good. And here I was painting a design on a piece of furniture knowing I was going to get a great result.

Here is the completed piece sitting in my garage waiting for pick up tomorrow.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it, Maria!
