The Completed Project



Last year I played for a couple of days with how to crop a photograph of a painter working on an intricate paint job for a Glastonbury Victorian house.

A couple of weeks ago I was driving on Main Street in Glastonbury and saw the finished paint job. Doesn't the house look great now?

It's an adorable facade and I like a lot that flag detail!

The finished project is a delight ... Wonderful palet of colours.

All those houses are fabulous. I'd like to discover the inside design. Do you think it's as rich and beautiful as the outside?..

Lynette said...

Oh, yes, it does! Completely wonderful, Jack. Thanks for getting this photo.

He did a great job!

A terrific job indeed! Such a lovely old house! Those windows are fantastic! I can never have too many windows!! Great captures, Jack, as always and a fun tour!

It's a beauty! Would they have that flag there all the time? Or was it July 4?

Glad to say my house is made of bricks and only needs painting inside!

Randy said...

Very nice indeed.

Ohhh yes, it does! Great work.

Lovely. What an intricate paint job - that must have cost a bit.

Bob Crowe said...

It does but that fox head, or whatever it is, on the sign in front has a bit if a creepy feeling.

I remember that post and wouldn't have guessed it was the same house. Such a beautiful old house. I wonder how long it took for the painter to complete the project.

San Francisco, where I (mostly) grew up, has some beautiful "painted ladies" like this -- and yet, they have some subtle differences. I wish I knew more about these beautiful Victorians to identify what it is.

I wouldn't crop it like this, but I like the house itself.

The two tone paint job is well-coordinated, and the hanging flag make a patriotic statement.
