|Inside this Issue — February 2009
In every issue of PaintWorks, it is our goal to present a wide range of projects to appeal to painters around the country and abroad. Through our technique-oriented articles, we hope to encourage you to seek more knowledge by taking classes and purchasing videos, books, and other educational materials. As you become familiar with the various techniques and mediums, you’ll feel more confident to stretch and make each painting your own. Many of the designs (or parts of the designs) we present can be adapted to surfaces you already own, including chairs, stools, dressers, trunks, nightstands, headboards, desks, file cabinets—the list is endless! With the long winter months just ahead of us and a new year on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to spruce up your home. And, if you live up North, start painting the accent furniture now and save the large jobs (walls, ceilings, floors) for spring. It’s also time for a “pick-me-up,” so grab your brushes and get going!
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
