from the "bedroom ceilings I have painted" series

Finished this tonight.


Not bad for laying it out with a measuring tape, two thumbtacks, and some string. It's about 4 feet wide from tip to tip. Here it is with the light fixture attached:


Here's the one in the other bedroom, which I did last year (was much easier).

Oops, 4 feet, thanks ... correcting. Now I'm reminded of Spinal Tap.

You obviously need to have some kids. Too much time on your hands.

It looks great!

I was listening to Depeche Mode while laying it out, and wanted to title this post "Little Sistine." But Nic said it was a really dumb pun. I thought it was funny.

No, Nic. NO! That is NOT a really dumb pun! That is actually very clever!



When things run smooth, it's already more than enough.

Put one at the center of your circle, swing the other one around at the end of the string to trace the arc.
