As many of you know, a large part of my art consist of paintings on brick pavers. These paintings are decorative and many people display them on tables, bookcases and such. Some of my clients use them as doorstops. They are each signed with my name “Cherry” and the year of completion.
Well I decided to add a disclaimer to go along with the bricks. I would love to get your opinion on it. Please let me know what you think. Here goes.
Disclaimer: I, Sandra Cherry Jones, painter and seller of this painted brick declare that I am not responsible for it’s unlawful use. The intended purpose is for it to be used as a decoration only. If found please do not contact me, Sandra Cherry Jones. I was not there. It was not me.
This is the third in a series of paintings that I am doing on wine bottles. They are each painted on a brick paver. These pavers are often used for paving walkways and driveways but I love painting my art on them. Some of my collectors use these pavers as doorstops but most of them display them on tables,shelves and mantles.
This is an acrylic painting of a child playing hopscotch. It was one of my favorite games when I was a child. This 4″x8″ inch painting is on a brick paver. These pavers are used for walkways and driveways but I enjoy turning them into works of art. To see more of my work visit my website at http://www.sandracherryjones.com
This painting pavers tutorial is an addition to the tutorial that I wrote a few months ago. I am always exploring ways to improve bricks for my paintings.Some artists paint on their bricks with little preparation which is good if you want the texture of the brick to show. I like a smooth surface to paint on because it helps in adding details to my art. I have tried various primers for my bricks, but recently I started using Olympic masonry block filler which works well for filling the cracks and pores of the bricks. I purchased it from Lowes’ Home Improvement store. http://www.Lowes.com It requires less coats. For more information on the process I hope you will check out my older post. If you have not tried painting on pavers I hope that you will. Mudpiestudio.blogspot.com has an interesting blog about bricks. Check them out.I would love to see some of your work. Please contact me if you have any questions or suggestions.
