PAINTING ARTWORK ON A FRONT PORCH WALL & PAINTING ROSES AROUND ROSE'S FRONT DOOR

   PAINTING ARTWORK ON A FRONT PORCH WALL & PAINTING ROSES AROUND ROSE'S FRONT DOOR

 My client asked me to do some artwork around her front porch area. 
 She wanted it to look "special" when company walked up to her front door.
     She told me to be creative and would leave it up to me.  She said wouldn't even peek! 
She wanted to be surprised.
     So, I painted this crepe myrtle tree, kind of a pinky red.   I painted these two pots of flowers and some ivy on the wall heading up to her front door.  Of course, the pot in the corner is a real pot of fern and that made my artwork look more interesting.
  Her house was a really nice gray color with a dark blacky gray roof.  
It was a really nice color for painting all of these colors that I used.
     Her name was Rose.
I wanted to paint roses around her front door, in honor of her name.  
She LOVED that!
     I painted and crackled the front door.
  Then, painted a color from the roses on the little trim.
     This was a fun project!
Rose was very happy with her new front porch and door!
