Painting neighborhood address signs done. You can see them sitting here, ready to seal with clear coat, dry and frame …

It doesn’t look like much but it is on good sign board. Sealed in white oil based paint, then black backgrounds sprayed for the arrow bases. The white numbers in the black arrows are made with white sign paint that is sprinkled with glitter while the paint is still wet, so these will shine when car lights flash on them. Probably won’t win any awards but should be easy to see when you are trying to find your way around out here.

Pete is planting the posts today, then we will put black frames on. then the delivery guys will have no reason to talk stink about us anymore 😉

What does an artist do? Paint signs.

What on earth 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.

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.

Painting neighborhood address signs process. Honest occifer! I did NOT use that spray can of paint! Oh, my fingernails… it is a new way to do my nails I tried using the spray paint to see if I could airbrush them myself. Anybody got bail money?
😉

Now I spray the (black) arrows backgrounds.
