hand painted signage: jill welsh

Hi all,
Jill has asked me to load these images of her work for her.
I think you will agree there is some cracking work here..
Thanks for sharing jill.. :wink:

Jill Welsh

Everything is hand-painted except for a few vinyl bits on the beer sign.
Check out all the rivets on the farm truck!
The auto body sign was painted for the first meet I hosted in 2000.
The barn was my first experience with dry-brush "antiquing" (easy!) & high scaffolding (scary!).
Museum sign is Sign Foam- layered & gilded.
Window is from last week...spilt a quart of white paint on the guy's blacktop parking lot.
I just put IOAFS on my sign so it looked as if I belong to a union.
Love- JILL

At American meets we say old Letterhead thing.
It could mean..."International Order of Fabricators & Signpainters"
But it REALLY means "It's only a F***ing sign!"
Didn't yins know that? HAHA
Thanks for posting, Robbie.
