Art-Faux Designs Seminar Sauturday August 8th 2:00 p.m.

Well it’s hard to believe that we are into August already and I am coming back to The International Design Center in Estero Florida. on August 8th at 2:00pm – 3:00pm for the third time in my Seminar Series of “What to Know Before You Faux”.
Its really amazing how time fly’s when your as busy as I am. Even though the economy has been rough on everything and everyone I have been focused on building relationships in these tough times which I believe is very important and by bringing public awareness to the decorative arts I hope to accomplish if even just for a little while how art matters weather its through the good times and even more so during the rough times.
You see if anything art is needed even more during the rough times in my opinion because I believe that this is when people are going to be more observant and open minded to new and brighter discoveries and ideas into the ever changing world that we live in. I have to be honest here, I have made some huge discoveries about myself that I thought were never possible and totally taken me by surprise.

2 years ago I would have thought you were out of your mind if you were to tell me that I would be publicly speaking about what I do for a living and I would have never thought that people would really be all that interested in coming to hear what I have to say. So now I am nervous because I have to keep the content of my seminars “fresh & interesting” In order to keep you all coming back so I have decided on doing a live demonstration for this months presentation.
In this presentation I am demonstrating a technique that I have learned many years ago from an artist friend of mine that is a cost effective way for a decoarative finish that when practiced it turns out to be a very nice application providing the right colors are chosen.

This is a layered finish and not a blended one for which there is a huge difference between the two. When applying this finish the idea is to concentrate on negative space rather than positive space and what I mean by this is that your not really concentrating on what you are putting on the wall but rather where your putting it , if that makes sense to you. This why I am doing this live demonstration so I can explain it a little easier and I explain probabaly even better in my video, but if not just shoot me an email with your phone number and I will give you a call to help.
