So the second one was scratched out last night. So lucky to have such various methods daily. I enjoy each for what they are! This method Sgraffito is ancient! Yet in this video I was able to create a more modern look by appealing to a new bar/lounge in Ybor Tampa ( The Barterhouse)Thx @chessalevendoski for wanting to jump in and learn the technique. Patience and love is required for such a large surface. Decoratively... some amazing things can happen. Old European walls and facades still showcase this method from years of wear and tear. It’s extremely durable. First coat for this one is is marmorino atop stucco. Then marmorino 600 tinted black..for a larger micron and depth for cutting into. Then limepaint for touch ups and lime seal to help from vandals😖. One more face and she is complete. More pics coming. #ronfrancis #ronfrancisart #ronfrancisplaster #sgraffito#scratchaway#plaster#mural#wall#facade#ybor#texture#mineral finish#exterior#architecture#organic#black&white#mural#thebarterhouse#lounge#bar-facade#

Finished up this accent wall for @buddybrewcoffee . I wanted more of a sculptural look. A few suggested leaving the soft grey plaster as a contrasting background. Still in the air about it. Was quite the challenge polishing tight areas. I enjoyed working and learning in this one!

Another view of lobby area in the works: Everything I’ve attempted , or tried, even failed at. Got me here. Got me to each job I do. Something to say though about working in NYC! The meeting with Michael @michaeldigiacinto, not by chance in Orlando, who blessed me with this opportunity. Remembering techniques and solutions from years ago. Knowing of a material from using it and it using me. This job has brought gifts of being surrounded by great craftsman and professionals. Like the master carpenter @dejmcgee Brilliant work in this lobby. To Leroy Street Studios, the incredible visionary in design with impeccable execution. @leroystreetstudio The architects who raise the bar for high end accomplishments in NYC properties. These past days on 2nd phase were a joy, humbling and instrumental in learning more patience. Thank you for the privilege to be involved!

My love of art continues to grow. Since moving to Tampa, I search on a daily basis to discover new art. I absolutely fell in love with these pieces in the @amaliearena enough to reach out to the artist @ronfrancisart just to express my admiration for his work. I wasn’t expecting anything in return when reaching out to him, expect for maybe a ‘thank you’ in my message box. What I did receive in return is something money can’t buy, a new friend. He’s an amazing human with a journey that I can relate to and respect. His work is as unique as the person. I feel fortunate enough to now know Ron and can’t wait to follow his work until the end of days. #tampa #art #ronfrancisart #blessed
