Painted Letter N's

N.   What a nice letter.   I have four N's today.   Okay.  I actually have three N's, but I don't like one of them so I used the SECOND word in the cow one to count as an 'N' I actually like.  

Confused?  

Yeah.  Me, too.

N

 
 This is the one I really don't like.   At all.   Don't say anything nice about it because I know that would be a lie.
 

 15 x 16.  I like this one.  It's all high gloss and rich looking in 'real life'.
 

 9 x 16   One of the big phrases I remember from my childhood. 
 
 
16 x 15.   Look!  It's a cow!   See the word 'now'?   That starts with an N.  I painted all the lines on that cow with a liner brush.  Mr. Jenny asked why I didn't just use a brown sharpie.   Ummm... d'oh.   Then it would be hand-sharpied and that doesn't sound nearly as cool as hand-painted, does it?  I love this sign including the crooked letters.  I think I was just exhausted from painting the cow!

No stencils.   No stickers.  Handpainted with my own layout.

Wowie, that is an excellent cow done free hand. You certainly are quite the artist.

Oh my goodness! Great minds think alike! Oh yeah, I had a great N post planned, ran out of time, and thought hey I'll post some cute quotes, (so glad I ran out of time for that too!) oh my silly how we can have the same thoughts so many miles away! Hopefully I can catch up (OH dear goodness the State Fair) opened up today....I have to catch up....I think I can I think I can I think I can! :)

You paint perfectly! I love the signs no matter what they say! Good to see you here so I can smile! I loved my sweet card with tea bag too! : )

Judie said...

I am soooo happy with my signs! And I love your "N" signs!! Here is something for you to turn into a sign. "Assess Consequences" Did I spell those words right? Anyway, this is a very useful sign that should be in everyone's home. It is something I want my children to always remember BEFORE they do something.

xoxo!!!

good for you to start an etsy shop!! And I like the nest itself, maybe not the letters. Is that ok to say? {:-D

Pondside said...

Congrats on the etsy shop! You will be busy painting more and more signs!

Splendid Little Stars said...

hand-sharpied. LOL!
amazing again!
I like them all! yep, I do!

Gattina said...

Besides the fact that they are all very nice I don't agree with "never quit" ! If you have an always boozed up husband or partner who beats you every day, I would certainly quit, lol ! ! I would also quit a restaurant if I had to wait 2 h to be served !

Busy Bee Suz said...

Holy Cow these are all great. Even the one you don't like....don't hate me!!! :)
