While waiting I thought I would do a quick post on progress with the Selina Rose Gallery.
In my last update on the Gallery I was uncertain how I would treat the exterior of the building. Daydreamer commented on my post suggesting: "... make it a bit like her home? or your childhood home?".
My sister has a wonderful white Art Deco styled home and our childhood home was white stucco with a green corrugated iron roof.
The Selina Rose Gallery now has a white stucco exterior with a green roof (albeit wooden and not corrugated iron).
I have also installed a flickering fire and lights (LED battery lights) and have added a few extra accessories.
(Sorry for the quality of the photos. It is a bit dark to be taking good photos but I wanted to get this post done.)
The attic studio now has a flickering fire, a few extra paintings scattered around, some art pads and a container of pencils. I will be adding some more art supplies.
I scaled down an 'Artists' magazine to go in the chill-out room. My sister loves her books and magazines so I had to have at least one in the Gallery. I will probably make some more magazines and one or two art books.
I've also added one of Karen's paintings in a gold frame in the chill-out room.
The desk now has some fan mail from art admirers and an order book. I still need to add some flowers in the vase.
I have installed these green frosted lights in the bottom two floors being the gallery space.
There is a much simpler light installed in the chill-out room.
The exterior. The door is not yet attached it is just sitting there. I still have a few touch-ups to make to the stucco and I need to decide what I am going to do with the windows and door.
Like the door, the roof panel is just sitting there and not yet attached. I think I may need to add another coat of paint to the roof pieces.
A close-up of the stucco. There are a few places around the windows and doors where I haven't taken the stucco in far enough and there are little gaps I need to fill.
Now I just need to decide how to treat the windows and door. There are always decisions to be made!
