FRONT DOOR PAINTING???
I finally got around to finishing the front door. Had ideas, you see, and just couldn't get up and bring them to fruition. Now that I have, and from a suggestion from my dear friend Susan in Vancouver Island, Jerry wants me to paint a sunflower on the panels. Oh, and the sunflower goes from the top yellow panel to the bottom so at the bottom is the stem with, oh, yeah, how about a frog on it?? We're not getting too carried away here, are we?
Sorry for the warped view - it's obviously from above and inside the house and I can't get a good spot from which to take a photo inside to show the bottom of the door and all 4 panels.
So, if this was your door, would you paint on those panels?
Here's the template that I can use for each panel - one facing to the right and one facing to the left (using the back side)...
Don't look for the frog - it isn't there yet and may not be - a little frog on a stem may be beyond me. Afterall, this has to be in acrylic and I don't paint in acrylic, just watercolor...and I have to paint this upright so I can't paint very wet and juicy unless I'm prepared for runs...and I can hear myself trying to talk myself out of this!
