Click here for my previous post on Joyce's work: Asheville's River Arts District And It's Talented Artists
Joyce had a recent art exhibit with a 1800's farmhouse door she had painted and it was well received. She calls herself the compulsive painter, she'll paint on anything and it's paying off! You'll see what I mean later on in this post, but for now I thought it would be nice to journey Joyce's process of this recycled door for you.
Here's is Joyce Thornburg with my parent's old wood basement door ready for her to paint.
My husband had to cut off the bottom of the door since it had water damage. Here the door is actually shown upside down.
I recently visited Joyce's studio during the River Arts District Art Studio and Stroll. And I was so happy to see the re-purposed finished beautifully painted door!

A close up of the painting on the door.
With Joyce's willingness and talent to paint on anything, along with her artistic vision, she has been commissioned by a local green builder to paint a door for his recent custom-built house in thriving West Asheville!
Here's the new commissioned door for a green custom-built home.
The above commissioned door with be installed at this new home. Here's the write-up about the green home for sale.
Way to go, Joyce! From just having fun painting on everything to getting a new start on commissioned doors for custom-built homes right here in our mountain city of Asheville, NC!
