Gabelli Map

Gabelli MapDetail 1

Detail 2Ric and I did this in 1996 while living in Florida. I was managing a map store at the time. (Really. It really was a store that just sold maps. And globes.) Hated the job, but I did get this nice colorful Gabelli map out of it.
Ric made the frame out of molding and then we painted it together. We kept brushing on different colors and brushing them off 'til we got this muddy mix and uhm, "antiqued" look. This particular look may have been inspired by Canadian Whiskey. But I love it, and 13 years later, it still hangs on our living room wall.
