Interesting stuff, thank God for the Artist!

Thanks Brian. The '70s were one of my favorite eras, as I was just starting to work for others. Also because the styles were exciting and imaginative.

With this current trend of a late fifites inspired "primer look"... I figure I will be doing more flake, endless line, and panel paint about five years from now.... and by 2023, I'll be getting requests for lace, freak drops, cobwebbing, fish scales (AKA flying thumb), and pot leaves again. :-)~

I've never thrown any lace away, and I've saved a lot of lacquer for webbing! I still have a lot of original ideas, that I thought of during that era, that I haven't tried yet. I can't wait!!! LOL! :-)~

Here's a little tribute to the '70s styles! .....
