Standing on an extension ladder, roasting in the sun as I painted the signage art on the exterior of the new offices of Brewe Layman, I had to field the constant questions from pedestrians below about the nature of the ‘new brewery’.

The interior wall awaits the addition of some pin-mounted dimensional letters. Both of these pieces are 100% hand painted using Golden Brand fluid acrylics. Modern Masters ‘Dead Flat Exterior Varnish’ used as the top coat on the outside panel adds UV protection for the pigments as well as pulling together all the different sheens, rendering them unreflective and slightly aged, as befits the district. This is in the charming old town area of Mount Vernon, Washington, the country seat of Skagit County. The mighty Skagit River slides by half a block away.
