I love, love, love my latest sign. It's a large picture of a vintage blue Ball Mason Jar. Someone said it reminded them of an Andy Warhol painting... sort of like his Campbell's Soup painting. My hair is looking a bit like his these days, too. Ha!
The idea of painting any two wood signs alike doesn't appeal to me, but if this one sells, I may have to make an exception. I was torn about even putting it up for sale. I'm hoping to create more signs soon - enough to fill the walls of my booth. Then I'll bring this one home!
By the way, I can't take full credit for the artwork. I used a picture of a jar I found on Graphics Fairy to create this. That sight can lead to all sorts of wonderful projects!
Here's another I finished this week -
It's a little smaller and easier to handle. On the downside, it was just as much work as making a large sign, but I won't get as much money for it. Bummer. These are not quick projects. On this one, I particularly liked the font for EGGS. My least favorite part are the circles. Handing painting a smooth circle is not easy! Will I ever master that brush??? I'll pretend that it adds to the charm and hand-painted folk art look.
Update: I decided I couldn't let the ball jar sign go. I love it too much. It's now on my marigold cupboard.
