Walls and dome, finished project.

Jeff Monsein, founder of Splat Paint and Design, had 20 years’ experience as the owner/operator of trade schools and employment agencies in Tampa, all in the field of auto and diesel mechanics and truck-driver training, but as he likes to say, he traded his diesels for easels in 2000 to pursue his love of art and relationship building. This year makes it even: 20 years for easels and 20 years for diesels.

This project was a reach, so to speak, and required the team to build scaffolding on the floor and the staircase so they could access the walls and ceiling dome. “Creating patterns on a curved dome requires extra attention and a little finagling to make them fit properly,” said Jeff.

Monsein and his crew of talented artists created custom patterns for that curved dome as well as on the walls. “The walls were stenciled in two different subtle colors, one matte and one metallic,” he said. “The ceiling dome was also painted in subtle matte and metallic colors. We created one-use stencils for the ceiling since the work was overhead.”
