The Sign – A Continuing Saga

Step One – Size up my homemade stencils

Step Two – Paint Stripper

Step Three – Scrape. Notice that the sign was put up by the ROTC of Westwood High School.

Step Four – Paint, Stencil, Stencil some more, and some more, then Frame.

On the Back

2005, for comparison

Step Six:  Right now, I’m teaching myself Folk Art painting.  Going to try my hand at bluebonnets in that lower left corner.  So far, my Bluebonnets look like blue smudges 🙂

Step Seven:  Remove that wooden frame on the ground, replace it with a low-level paver fence/retaining wall.  Perhaps fill in with topsoil, plant some flowers !

I’ve enjoyed this project oh so much.
