Set Designer's Day

This is a period of overlap.  Yesterday I was supposed to be painting on In the Next Room, but got hijacked by The Fantasticks with side swipes from The Frequency of Death.  Today will be much the same.  There's going to be a documentary made about the making of Frequency, the black & white mystery that opens on New Year's, and I'm supposed to have coffee with the filmmaker this morning... but I'm itching to paint on a different show... sigh.  Still, amid the clutter of Fantasticks' builder's and production meetings yesterday, at least I found a rug to borrow for In the Next Room!

Keeping shows straight in your head can get confusing, but luckily these productions are quite distinct in character and their sets are too, so that's not a problem.  But once I had two kitchen-sink style sets building simultaneously - with two kitchen sinks - and when questions came up then...!  Keeping these Victorian,  Minimal, and Black & White Deco designs straight is a piece o' cake!

  1. We now are the proud owners of a utility sink once again. The most beneficial thing about the whole project was the cleanup, which I did not have to do within the downstairs bathroom sink.
