Artist Demo: Eileen Whalen -- May 8th (Friday)

On Friday, May 8, from 6 to 8 pm, Eileen Whalen will be demonstrating how she paints her floorcloths.
In addition to canvas floorcloths, Eileen does a lot of faux finish treatments for walls, and painted furniture. Recently, one of our customers requested Eileen to make two "wall" paintings for her home. Pictured at left are the wall paintings just before being delivered to the customer. Also, pictured at top are the floorcloths Eileen has been creating for us. Come by to see Eileen's demonstration on Friday.
