Main Street Inn in Metal


LOVE working this special place in copper - almost as much as I love staying here!! The Main Street Inn in Sainte Genevieve is one of my favorite places to stay, and it often inspires me when in town.  Architecture is especially well suited for this metal technique, working both from the front and back of the metal.  After sketching my scene with a ball stylus, I begin pushing and pressing the scene into shape, following the planes of the building.  I keep finding new ways to use my tools, each piece teaching me something new.  Painting number 3727 in 3727 days
