Lane's End Decorative Arts

Lane's End Decorative Arts, is me, PatMcWhorter. When I moved to my current home I finally picked a name for my business. I live on Ferris Lane, which is a Dead End Street, hence, Lane's End! This site features my work as a Muralist and a Decorative Painter. Some of my Artwork is done in my studio, for example, paintings and murals on canvas, or painted furniture. I would say that most is done on-site, either in your home or Business.

Living a dream!

Since my husband retired I have returned to painting on Canvas and other smaller Decorative Art projects.

Most of my more recent work is posted in my Etsy Shop

2012 Mansion in May

I was selected to design and paint a stairway in the prestigious Show House,  Mansion in May at Glynallyn Castle, in Morristown, NJ.  Now that the month is over I can take the time to post some in progress photos.  

My Space was a "back of the house" servants stairway, so though the front of the house has incredible vaulted ceilings, decoratively carved moldings, fireplaces surrounds, and stained glass leaded windows, that the other designers were chosen to HIGHLIGHT, my stairwell had to HIDE the pipes, wires and holes in the cement walls!

2012 Mansion in May

Here is the journey that I have experienced over the last few months. 
I have been privileged to participate in one way or another in the last 6 Designer Show Houses for The Women's Association of Morristown Medical Center.  This years Mansion is really a castle
 Glynallyn Castle:

Of course my space was not as beautiful as that video would have you believe!  I had a servants staircase to transform into a stairway leading to the Jazz/blues Club that was Decorated in the original Shakespearean Theater  in what is commonly called "The Dungeon"

Is it finished?

I Added some Smoke and finished it up, unless my client has any other ideas. In a week, after it cures, I will be applying an exterior varnish.

Finally getting toward the end!

Though I have been busy with many projects, I have finally been able to make some progress, between other projects and rainy weather. Here are some of my latest pictures. I still have to finish painting the rocks and a plaque describing the scene.
