Yes, I did another one!

We bought this cabinet for some friends of ours as a house-warming present and I painted it for them to order.
They picked the Mimbres designs and I painted them on. Mimbres Art

Before:



Here's the TOP:



The two SIDE PANELS:





And the FRONT:



I had a great time doing this one. I thought the black and white would be boring, but it turned out very nice. I can't wait for them to see it.

Thanks.
Here are a couple larger pics. It's just hard to see the details that way.

As he should. Was it all free hand? It's amazing either way...

Thanks.


I made my own stencils for the small lizards on the front and the horned lizard on the top. The others, I drew free hand on the cabinet in pencil and painted. This piece is kind of rough-hewn in places so the texture made it hard to be precise, especially for something as small as the lizards' on the front.
