I have started on the stonework, I am really happy with the effect so far. I have decided to really make the bricks stand out too.

Today I tackled the projection room, most of which is completed. The painting is a lot quicker than the burning. Now for me the trick is to get my next board made and the next scetch done, so that I can carry on or it can take me up to a week to get started again.

Wonderful!  Love your work and the warm feeling the wood give to your painting.
Cheers, Annie

 :thankyou: Mea, Teresa, Val, Annie and Dannielle. This is taking longer than I thought, but then again I am also busy painting the interior of the hall, before installing the hanging system. We are aiming to open around spring, which is around September.
