The Counting House Shingle

I painted this shingle for a production of A Christmas Carol.  I’ve painted this show at least 6 times and this is my favorite sign I did for any of them.  It helped that the designer & carpenters conspired to give me a beautifully made surface to work on.  Such a lovely shape.  The letters have some real gold leaf in them broken up with paint to age it down.  It looked great under the lights. Just the right amount of flash & grunge.
