PAINTING ARTWORK ON RUSTY OLD CORRUGATED ROOF TINS FOR RUTH

PAINTING ARTWORK ON RUSTY OLD CORRUGATED ROOF TINS FOR RUTH

Ruth built a new home way out in the country. 
 She had me do several things for her new home and I really loved working for her.  She had the most beautiful country acreage with flowers and butterflies everywhere.
She found some old rusted corrugated sheets of tin roofing and asked me to paint some colorful artwork on them so she could hang them from a great big tree down by the shed.
So, this is what I painted. 
 I worked on them in my backyard.  The roof tins were so easy to paint and it was fun creating something bright and colorful for Ruth's beautiful garden.
I wasn't sure if she was going to hang them side by side.  So just in case, I painted the yellow lantana kind of like it was one big patch of yellow.
To paint on these roof tins was Ruth's idea and such a unique one!!

She is a great decorator and I loved everything she did in her new home.
In her last home, she wanted me to paint her kitchen cabinets and I begged her to let me paint them red.  She had touches of red in her living area close to the kitchen and I knew the (browny) red would look sooo good.  She was reluctant at first and then absolutely LOVED her new red kitchen.  She loved it so much that she painted the same shade of red in her large new country kitchen and it looked wonderful!!
Thank you for letting me do this awesome project for you, Ruth!

    1. Thank you! I painted over the rust, but it should come back through and make it look really good, again.

    1. Thank you Isabelle! If I ever get to go back out to visit Ruth in the country, I'll be sure to take a picture. I'll try to find a picture of the first red kitchen I painted for her. It was a small kitchen and I painted the ceiling red, too and it was just wonderful!!

    1. Thank you! I didn't get to see them after they were hung, but knowing Ruth's decorating and her garden, I know they looked special, wherever she placed them.
