Chalk Paint Experiments

A few weeks ago I discovered chalk paints, fell in love with the color selections and decided to experiment.  After one day of playing with them, I'm starting to like them - a lot.  Here's what I've done so far.

Would love to hear what you think - - good or bad.  Any suggestions for improvements? 

These paints are intended for use in furniture refinishing but I think they are perfect for painting landscapes.  Flat finish, water based, easy cleanup and super fast drying.

Marietta July Artwalk

First Show - Done !  A great big fun party !  Big crowd, lots of mingling, sold some things and looking forward to August 5th.  Notice above my head, in the second picture, the new a/c unit, could not have done this show without it.  I was lucky to have my pick of locations and when I saw that a/c unit there was no doubt where I would be sitting.  Must give credit to the Marietta organizers, they know how to do things right.  A night I will always remember.
