Work in Progress

This is one of several vintage drawers that a friend found for me. I used gesso to give the inside some texture then painted the whole thing cobalt blue. After adding the vintage map and scuffing up the edges with sandpaper, I added a coat of amber shellac for a more cohesive look. What’s really cool is that all the elements to finish this piece – to be titled “The Journey” – are lined up on my work table. Watch for photos of the finished work!
