Approximately 54″ high, 42″ wide and 22″deep, this cabinet was custom designed to fit a particular space. The decorative painting was developed from an idea for another design that didn’t proceed. The cabinet is made from mdf and painted with latex and acrylic paints with several thin layers of varnish for protection.
Commissioned by a publisher in exchange for some advertising, the table was made with 4″ x 4″ legs tied together with interlocking mdf beams. The legs and 7′ x 3′ mdf top were painted with acrylics and protected with several thin coats of varnish. The top also has a protective glass overlay.
I picked up this chest of drawers from a secondhand store to use as a test project. I then painted it with a stylized flooded canyon using acrylics. Finished with several thin coats of varnish, it has served me well for many years.
I borrowed a somewhat sad looking wood veneered pedestal that had seen better days and revitalized it with a grained faux finish to the body and a faux tortoiseshell inset top. I added the simple graphic details on a whim. The pedestal subsequently sold for substantially more than its original price.
The painting of this desk and chair was commissioned by an artist for his in-home private gallery. Following his request for a brightly colored, folk art feel, I prepared colored sketches for approval. Both items were painted with the ombre style background before the detailed designs were painted on top.
