Faux Finish Mirror Project:

Standard

There is a time where you just NEED to do art!  That is how I felt when I decided to put the Faux Tortoise Finish on my plain, boring, white mirror.  It was such a blast, and the time just flew by as I worked on it.  I am pleased with the finished product!  I’m struggling to find a venue to sell pieces such as this.  I’m presently working on another mirror (rectangular this time), a child’s wooden chair, and a few picture frames.  Currently looking for inspiration, and items to “finish”!!

About Lela Mac

I am in the process of retiring after teaching Art & Interior Design with the NC Community College system for about 30 years. One is required to take a minimum six month sabbatical from any state work once declaring the retirement process. When my six months have passed, I will continue to teach Art/Design as an on-line adjunct. My first classes taught were as a Graduate Assistant at ECU. Next, at the Community College through the Continuing Education Department (watercolor, drawing, color theory,). Later, I began teaching Art classes related to Interior Design, and served as the department chair. I was honored as the Carteret Community College 2003 recipient of the Excellence in Teaching award. Over the years, I have participated in various art shows in eastern North Carolina, including work displayed in Raleigh in the State Office of Community Colleges. I enjoy decorative/faux finish painting, and also painting on canvas. I was sponsored as an artist in the 2001 Red Wolf Ramble and granted an Honorable Mention for my NCSU Dining-sponsored “Canis Rufus Patrioticus”. A few other artistic endeavors include the illustration of a children’s book for a local author and fund-raiser art for Habitat for Humanity. Full Steam Ahead with my art!
