OR .......HOW TO IMPROVE PERFECTION
As all our neighbors realize by now.......when our garage door is UP....they KNOW MC is at work. Some, as they are walking their dogs, will stop and ask: "MC ....what are you making now?" This was the case yesterday.....
MC has been at work all this week building an extremely ingenious creation !!! When it came time to start the paint spraying.....the door had to go up due to the fumes.
The reason for this creation was to fulfill a promise we made to Erica!!!
Last weekend, Erica was so disappointed at the finished form of the Christening Dress piece she did for us last year . She saw it for the first time "hanging" in the Bucket List House. To her dismay, she was very upset because the frame the canvas was on was warped. It made the piece look crooked!!! Every time she saw it ......she said: "That's awful....IT HAS TO BE FIXED". She actually wanted us to take it down until she could figure out a way to redo it.
I had learned to accept the off center appearance as part of the Originality of her design!!! She didn't buy this view!
We talked about how to fix it all weekend. We assured her we could come up with a solution.
AND WE DID.........
We had two or three ideas, before coming up with the most ingenious solution.
I had an idea about setting it in a box. I asked MC if he could make a frame in the form of a box? We could attach the canvas to the box from the inside, hiding the uneven form. He immediately understood my vision!!!!! In no time he had a plan.
........ and off to Lowes we went!!!
With three 8' strips of one style of lumber, and four 7' foot pieces of another, we headed home. He spent the remainder of the week building the "box", sanding it, and finally painting it!!!
He devised such a clever way to attach the canvas to the frame!!!
