So you want to see more of that ceiling detail….
…I wrote about it initially in this blog post!
Uhhhh, y e a h—I admit, I still haven’t finished it.
I liked my designs for the center scrolls and fleur de lis “finial” (not applied yet), but I just couldn’t get the outer scrolls right. So I stepped away from it.
And I haven’t returned as yet. Oooops.
C’est la vie!
Why the sky–??
Well—this is the guest bedroom I’ve claimed for my own while at my mother’s.
And—I really missed my Arizona skies….the clearest and most incredibly brilliant, turquoise-y blue skies that are impossible to forget!
So I’m “taking comfort” in a painted version! Sure, I gave it wAy more clouds than you’d ever see in Phoenix, but it needed some layering—including those sparrows and barn swallows!
I tied a loose loop in string around the chandelier, stretched it out 4ft, and tied another loose loop around a pencil. And then drew out the 8ft diameter circle.
I bought a PLASTIC version of detailed cove (usually used for exteriors) so I could trim out the circular shape—and then I painted away!
—inside the lines!—
It’s a nice way to wake every morning!
Here’s another view of my desk and “Panetière.”
