sign work

I've had my sign-painting hat on the past week or so- that is, actual signs, not paintings of signs, which is a different hat- and just finished these two for a couple of beloved establishments on Main St in Beacon. They are each 4'x4' painted on wood, both sides, and of course it took a bit longer than I thought, because I do it the freehand sketch-it-out way. I think they were seeking the handmade look, so I'm all right. I do this sort of work enough to be reasonably good, but not frequently enough as to be a true master of the craft, effortless and sure. (Although, two separate people who watched me paint said that my long brushstrokes relaxed them. Beats watching paint dry, I suppose.)
