what does an artist do on the weekend?…

Paint neighborhood address signs of course! Here are two signs masked off ready to shoot with black for the arrows.

addressSign2 addressSign1

If you have ever been over to visit our place you would know why these signs are needed. I bet you we are in the UPS and FedEx drivers “stink list” for being hard to find. Oh well! These are directional signs (for the two bends in our private road debatable as a driveway) made of sign board (expensive smooth plywood) and coated with white house paint 2 coats yesterday. Now the (black) arrows are laid out and masked off with masking tape so I can shoot the arrow backgrounds.
