Is it real or is it….?

I love people who love art, and my recent client is certainly one who loves unique art! It all started with a special design to be painted on a precious end table. When I was invited to her home, I noticed all her wonderful unique art, especially her large free-standing horse sculpture on wheels made of wood and metal that she acquired while living in CA (behind the hand painted table). photo #1

Then on Halloween, her beautiful cat decided to jump on for a ride, tipping it, braking the sculpture in two. Not being able to repair, and wanting to immortalize her artwork in some way, she thought of her “Untapped Resource” and gave me a call.

With the cat supervising, we began to create a mural on the wall. photo #2 – #3. When finished we re-attached the saved metal pieces,  and the result was a real success!  photo #4  Subscribe to my website – SherylVanderpol.com and like my Untapped Resource Facebook page, for more inspiration monthly. 763-542-1116

Italian Inspiration – A Home-owner’s testimonial

Image

“Sheryl Vanderpol is an artist – an artist who listens to her clients. Throughout the planning and creation process, Sheryl listened, talked and collaborated with us to create the perfect mural for our new kitchen. We have always been fascinated with European street scenes, and have a special fondness for Italy. With that in mind, we wanted to experience this in our home on a daily basis. Through our descriptions and conversations, she interpreted the unique qualities of an Italian plaza (piazza). She was able to capture the overall feel of what we wanted, while paying close attention to unique details. The creative energy Sheryl brings to the entire process is contagious and inviting. She receives that creative energy from working with people to paint artwork that belongs especially to them as individuals. Sheryl is gifted and talented – a delight and inspiration as an artist.”
