Decoupage is the art of decorating a surface with paper cutouts.
Decoupage flourished in Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries and many elaborate
decorations on boxes, trays, chests and tables, formerly believed to have been hand painted, were later found to be merely cut outs cleverly applied by a crafty artisan.

The chair sold for more than I ever expected!

 


In 1974 I was commission to do a series of murals for a school basement
Scans are of old photos of the mural panels.
In 2004 these photos were published in the book "Don't Wake The Teacher''
 

and shown on Rogers Television
during the author's interview on
Lifetime Durham, Host Al Nichols, in  Nov. 2004
