At each stage of this kiln build I didn't think I could be any more excited in the future steps. Looking back at this cold day in November, warm enough to paint but excitedly shivering in the cold, I realized I had so more moments and shots like of me I'd send to my sisters. They are my cheerleaders as much happy for me as they are proud of my dad.
My vital role this day was anticipating where the wind was blowing and making sure it wouldn't reach the cars. High temperature paint bond perfectly with the cars, so I stood behind large pieces of cardboard saved from the wood floor installment several months earlier. Off in the distance, Fergus, our beloved Golden Retriever and Sadie, our black Lab foster dog poked around wanting to know what all the buzz was about. I love that about them. So curious about what we're doing at each step. Dogs are seriously just the best.
Not long after we primed the frame I left for an assignment in NYC with an old brand. It wasn't an easy assignment and through that hard time I left behind this dream to keep me going. 5 months later the final coat was added and it started to feel real.
