Specialized Art…

A couple of weeks ago, I finally was able to deliver this custom built mirror. It was quite a process but I love a challenge! First, I went to the buyer’s house and checked out the space they had in mind for the mirror. After we decided on a size, 3’x4′, I went to the Habitat for Humanity Restore and after numerous trips and lots of digging, I found some wood house siding that I hoped was wide enough for the frame. I’m pretty handy, but not as much as my friend Bryan who has skills with a saw that I will never have. He put together a fantastic frame…better than I imagined. After many more weeks of painting it was time for the placement of the mirror. Again, Bryan helped out. Cutting super thick glass is not easy! Cracks can easily occur and he broke a couple large pieces. Ugh.  After a lucky find at the thrift store… one more try and he cut the mirror perfectly! I was a little nervous since I had promised delivery the following morning…

I forgot to mention that one of the buyer’s (Susan and David) requests was for maps to be incorporated in the painting of their favorite places. It is definitely THEIR piece! I wish I had a photo of the mirror installed…hopefully soon.

If you’d like a custom piece of art, let me know! As for now, I have started a painting on a wood headboard I found on the curb. One man’s trash is a future work of art!

Frame done, before mirror.
