The efforts I have put into posting and discussing window painting on the internet have spanned about four and a half years. In this time period, I have written articles, edited and posted images, and published a how-to guide on the subject. It has been a wonderful run of work and a satisfying set of accomplishments, but I am still only in the beginning.
My next set of goals includes two guides to compliment the one I have already written and a set of images that I can use for commercial purposes. I would like to create a line of merchandise featuring the art I create and for that I have to paint my creations on a surface I can take pictures of. The windows look fantastic when all is said and done, but the images never do them justice. The reflections off the glass or the elements in the background do not make for great quality printing although they are just right for my portfolio. This is another challenge is in the making and that drives me to keep going.
My friend Chris is an urban farmer in Michigan and we were talking about his goal to be a seller at the local county farmer's market. I thought up a quick theme for his business and posted it for him to use on signs and letterheads. I can do this with a basic design and motif on the computer. If you need something seriously detailed and fancy you may have to look elsewhere. I prefer very simple images.
My friend will be selling fruits and veggies, flowers and herbs and helping those who inquire about his expertise. My friend is very smart on many levels and it has been an honor to work with him along the line on our mutual passion - gardening. I wish him much success in this endeavour.
