Thyme to see a design by Kim Hogue that I painted called Harbor Sea Coast

Harbor Sea Coast 
is a design by
Kim Hogue CDA


that I painted


on a small childs armoire
that was mine growing up


I painted my design on the door to the armoire


I had to adjust the design some to make it fit my surface


My surface measured 
30" x 15"


I started out basecoating the surface, whale sign 
and
 lighthouse


Painting the lighthouse
and


adding the checks


working 
on the
WHALE SIGN


I used an "artistic" license to add my town to the sign
which is 
Barnstable


working on the sailboat


adding some shading to sail


and 
STRIPE 
to the sail!


Now a STAR!


I originally painted
 BOSTON 

on the sail as 
Kim Hogue
did in her directions
BUT


I changed my mind and used an "artistic license"
and 
painted 
CAPE COD
instead!


Kim uses distressing sticks a lot in her designs


They are FUN to use!


They add so much dimension to your project!




Kim Hogue 

is the
 QUEEN of DETAIL!


She loves her embellishments!

I painted WOOD buttons for the wheels on the boat


painting the flag


FINISHED!


This piece was a LOT of work!
I love it!


But worth it!
