I am in the process of having a blast creating all new finishes for my ArtFusion class in Santa Fe, on November 6. For the most part we will be painting finishes for cabinets and furniture.
And we will create one piece of glass art intended as an insert for cabinet doors. The idea is to capture family memories using a handwritten letter or note.
This class sample holds many memories for me…
…years ago after my Dad passed away I discovered a tiny, old, handwritten story in his little bible. I later learned that when he was a small boy he could not sit still in church, so his uncle wrote him stories – in their native French – to keep him amused.
I can just picture it. A little guy in a looming cathedral filled with the aroma of incense, all dressed up with his hair spit-combed by my Memere. He’s squirming in the pew and poking his big brother and sisters…
… and so began the story of the big dog adventure.
Stay tuned for the companion cabinet door sample to come soon.
Hope to see you there!
