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.

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.

Back at it





Soo, It has been a long cold and wet winter. After the one day in January that was above 40 degrees, I stopped by the job site and discovered that some of the paint had run down the window again, and some had chipped off. Well, I decided that I had better wait awhile, so the last 2 days were in the sixties, so I finally got back to work. Of course the it will be turning cold tomorrow with rain in the forecast ahead, but it will get finished, I promise!

Break in the Weather!




I had 1 day in the last 2 Months that the temperature was over 40 for more then an hour. I was able to correct a few mistakes and continue to add detail to the Revolutionary War Figure. I still have work to do, but luckily my client would rather wait then have the paint peel off!
Of course First I had to shovel a spot to paint from!

Revolutionary War Sodlier- In Progress



The Signal Beacon has been lit, and I started painting my soldier. It is a challenge to paint a composite figure. I used 3 different photos to incorporate the stance of the soldier, while attempting to depict an accurate uniform. More painting tomorrow.
