I have the pleasure to live with and experience an age-old trade on a daily basis.
That trade is Sign Painting.
Before the time of computers, all signs were created by hand, by a sign painter.
My boyfriend, Derek, is a talented sign painter that runs his own business called Golden West Sign Arts. I assist in the shop & help with anything and everything.
Everything in our shop is done the old fashioned way, without the use of computers (aside from email). All signs are painted by hand, from drawn patterns. Derek is also a specialist in the art of gilding with genuine gold leaf.
Our shop is an interesting place that I thought some of you may like to see. Here are tons of photos…
Now, let’s have a peek at the inside of the shop!
Here are a few more shots of the dashing Sign Painter for your viewing pleasure.
Check out our website to see examples of the sign work we’ve done!
Here is a wonderful video shot for Jack Daniel’s Whiskey of Derek painting for their ad campaign this summer. It turned out great!
