As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

Old Paint

Found some of my old Warhammer Orcs. I painted when I was much much younger then I am now.

These are about 25 years old and small, sitting on top 1" Square bases, about 2" tall!

Mexican painted signs

In October myself the wife and kids went to Mexico for some fun and sun. I love Mexico and always enjoy seeing all the hand painted signs through out the country side, they are everywhere.

We took a day trip into an old Spanish village and I could have spent all day walking around just looking at hand painted signs (we had 55mins), it would take months of driving around Ontario to find even a quarter of the signs I saw in one day.

We have the same vinyl signs slapped up everywhere.

Be unique and install a hand painted sign, I know just the person to do it ;)

Show your true colors and be unique!

Target Canada

It's time to build a .ca, I have been getting lots of traffic from the USA, China, as well as Europe. The logs do not lie, I have been going over the logs a lot in the last couple months and if you are reading this what are your thoughts on the subject of local dot.coms.

In my effort to attract more Canadian customers, I will setup a .ca and hope it will get more traction with Google and fellow Canadians, focusing on my local municipality.

What do you think??

Art Space

Going to get half the art studio(garage) cleaned out this weekend!

Hope I can resist the erg to tinker!!! Wish me luck.

Keep Practicing

Had a cover up done today!
Just a little reminder very time I look down to keep practicing!

Studio

Spent a good full hour clean and organizing, now have about 10 sq ft to work in....
Got the vinyl cutter setup and have a couple paint masks to do later tonight.

And just about done the 'honey do list'.

Art Studio

After long reflection on the little space, it's not going to work, the limited space has many safety issues and a very large expense, to get fresh air into the room when painting (safety).

The new plan!
Insulate the two car garage, add a heater and ventilation.
So no more eating out and buying coffee, time to save money for the insulation and drywall.

And the biggest hurdle is emptying the garage, it's full of stuff from the old house and candy machines!

So if you are reading this and are business or property owner in Clarington I have and very nice candy machine for your high traffic store!


Autofest

Great weekend at Autofest,
lots of very nice cars and people

The charity auction was one of the best to date!

Below is a sample of what I painted Sunday, it's Penelope Pit Stop on a bowling pin and is far from finished, keep checking back for updates.

Things to do

Still things to do around the 'new to us' house, lots to do, sort, unpack, so no work on the paint studio to share.
But on a sidebar I can't believe some people don't check/change the furnace filter...

Practice, Practice, Practice

Not much of that has been going on around here just moved 12 days ago.

This SIGN 'pun intended' is from an old sign painting book Unkl Ian gave me.

New paint studio

We have move and I get to put together a new paint studio!!! It's not big, which for me is a good thing, I have a tendency of collecting too much stuff!
So lean and mean from hear on in.. Easel will go up on the right side with storage behind and the tool box will have a table top added.
Check back for up dates and I'll be documenting my lettering practice.
