Infinity…..

Hot Pink Bougainvillea, made of Permanent Rose + White, dips down between the weathered beams of the Pergola. As you read through my blog don’t forget, you may click on any of the images to see them larger.

After adding leaves to the Bogie above, work begins on the bistro table. I’ve decided to make the top out of tile. The entire surface is covered first, then the lines separating the individual ceramic tiles are drawn into the wet paint.

Sunlight glistens on the wine bottle and glasses. Next, the Magenta seat cushions of the chairs are made. Gary asked if I could add the figure 8 “Infinity Symbol” below the heart design. He and Kathy feel that expresses their love; they like to say, “The Honeymoon’s not over!” And they’ve been married a long time. Isn’t that cool?

The satillo tile floor is painted in the same manner as the table top. The entire surface is blocked in first, establishing the light and shadow pattern. Then the table and chair legs are drawn with a mix of MUD (Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson) + Liquin.

Perspective lines are pulled into the wet floor with a fine liner brush dipped in the same thin mixture that was used for the legs of the table and chairs.

The floor is complete! We’ll be planting flowers in the containers in our next session…..and I think I’ll have another “Talking” video for you!

But before I go I want to remind you tomorrow is Memorial Day. Many of you will have the day off; most likely celebrating with friends and family by throwing something on the grill or smoker. Please take a moment to pause and remember all of the people who have given the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live in this wonderful country. God has blessed us by allowing us to be born in the United States of America. Our great nation and home has been protected by thousands of men and women, giving their lives so we can live in freedom. We are grateful to all of them and their families. Our hearts and prayers are with everyone in the armed forces and law enforcement. Let’s remember them every single day, not just on this particular one. When you see someone in uniform make sure to shake their hand and say, “Thank you for your service. I appreciate your sacrifice.” With grateful HUGS,
