Really tiring June.

Finished mural, which I did in between other projects and rainy moods and being tired. Two layers of poly on the top.

This one on the other wall. Still lots to do, but frame on since yesterday.

Kitchen walls to match design on the cabinets. I mixed 3 glazes on the Bone White base and used woodgraining tool to play with the texture, experimenting technique. I have old woodgraining Italian tool from ages ago, blend a bit with linen technique. Pretty cool result, they wanted modern feeling.

I have no time for myself and feel sick of not drawing. But need to do what I do, because I am not free. Few strokes on drawing of old car, few sentences on Kindle of Ruth Rendell book and that's all.

Your customer's frame choices are phenomenal! And your work, Nikira, is exquisite. I hope you feel better and time frees up for you a bit.

Thank you very much, CrimsonLeaves. We went to the moldings shop and advised customer what frame he should look for and bought bigger and smaller moldings, which the girl I work with put together and stained. Combining 2 moldings and choosing corner pieces could create beautiful frames. :)

Thank you very much, Katherine! I have to always listen to this people, who it is for, to understand what will make them happy. Of course, to let them know what is the best way would be. :)
