Water Tank Touch Up 2012

It was 2003 when we, along with a number of high school students, painted the town's water tank...

Four years went by and the elements took their toll. So, in 2007, Geoff did a mural touch up - to freshen things up a bit...

Now, in 2012, the water tank underwent a complete paint job. The majority of the work was completed by Geoff, with a little help from me (Andrea), Jantje, Gerald Cloud, Jackie Guthrie, Wilma Blokhuis, and the littlest one.

Ta da!

Sprucing up the place

It's been a busy spring for us at Jarea Art Studio. Our focus this winter has been on the construction of our house (complete with home studios). But now that the weather is turning warmer, we've started to focus on sprucing up the studio by the bay. Just this weekend, I tackled the garden while Jantje painted the floor and outside trim. Things are getting brighter!

Speaking of which... Geoff recently completed a private mural in the stairwell of a local home.

Meanwhile, the town's water tank (which we first painted along with a number of high school students in 2004) was due for a touch up. That work is still in progress. Honk at Geoff when you drive by - he might even wave!

Until next time...
