Time is fast running out but there is some real progress being made on the hotel sign. All the rotten wood has been removed, filler has been filling, new oak has been gluing, I have been carving and all the loose paint has been removed.
I've made a new scaffold for the noose and after finishing off the last of the carving this week I've been repainting him so he has a smart new jacket and the horse is now being returned to his original colour of chestnut rather than grey.
Time Off? No Siree, I've also squeezed in a spot of gilding in the evening- these will be going on a large circular convex mirror for English Georgian.
