I just finished this for a woman who lives a couple of towns away from me. The blue she chose was a bit bright and she was concerned it might be from the get go. It was, so I toned it down by mixing in a little black.
This was a CL find, the price was right but the town where it was located has a pretty bad rep. With that in mind, I shoved my pepper spray in my pocket although I knew who I was meeting. You see, I plugged her name into Facebook and sized up the situation...18 year old girl who was in the process of moving. OK a little stalkerish I know.
I really like how it turned out....vintage eclectic. It was fun painting something completely different than I otherwise would have.
