Snapshot of "the" bookcase today. Filtered with full equalization for a flat appearance. Every detail becomes part of the overall pattern with an easing of highlights and shadows. Click to see larger.
First new piece to be finished this year, named Cheers. This piece sitting on the floor, in the center, was begun in 2007 and revised in 2008. It sat 'curing' in the attic from that time until today—refusing to tell me what it needed to be finished until this morning… This photo is just before I sanded it all over, weakening the striping and last few layers of paint. This was in preparation for the final clearcoats which will include a subtle checkerboard pattern in an amber clearcoat. Then I finished the layering with a graphite grid in varying sizes throughout the entire piece. Click to see it in greater detail.
