Cleaning up the bill: with a palette knife, white cement, black concrete powder paint & a little water…

Primasil & Rainsil: from Eco-House.com Ok, so I spoke to Elizabeth today in New Brunswick (Fredericton)(toll-free), & this is what we came up with (she came up with), as an eco-friendly concrete sealer for Swannee when she is cured…(28 days minimum)…

I am going to use Rainsil to Primasil in a proportion of 1 part :9 parts …This will strengthen the concrete sealing coat but allow for breathability…The Rainsil also offers anti-graffiti protection, so if someone spray paints on a Rainsil surface, you can remove the graffiti easily…(more easily)…(sometimes with just soap & water, or maybe with Eco-House oranges solvent if it is tough)…The Primasil breathes well so if water gets in it can get out too, which is important because if water gets in & gets stuck then freezes & expands you get a cracked concrete sculpture…

The great & nice & wonderful thing is Elizabeth from Eco-House offered to send me a pre-mixed batch 1:9 of Rainsil to Primasil, which saves me the measuring & the cost of shipping two things & the brain power…Plus I told her my square footage (about 5 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet= 45 square feet) & she told me I only need about a Litre total of concrete sealer solution! 

I am also looking into their silicate mineral pigments for concrete applications like murals or concrete sculptures…The paint actually cures into the cement so it really stays put…Eco-House has a sample box of assorted colours in 8 ounce bottles, or you could just try one bottle to see how it goes on whatever your project is…This company has NO VOC paints, not just low, & honestly I Love them! (they put up my oil painting “Salesgirl” on the front of their website because I only always ever use their eco-dammar varnish on my paintings, & I am so humbled by that attention…They even put up a web address grovecanada.ca on the image- which is so nice & I have always wanted to be one of those artists that a company uses as an example & now I am…! Makes me blush…Gosh, I really have to get that website in order now! Must go to do that!

Last words: If you have a painting project, concrete sealing project, building project- go to ECO-HOUSE.COM & see what they can help you with! This is just the best company I have ever dealt with…Ever…(not just Elizabeth,but the owner too, & the other people there who I have dealt with over the last 15 years…)

About GroveCanada

Artist Statement: I like to push...Push the fold...Innovate...Figure out how to do something then figure out how to do it even better...I get bored once I accomplish something...I can’t seem to make multiples...Once it is done, it is done ; I am not going to make another one...This can hurt profitability...But I feel the paradigm of repetitive production is obsolete...I see a future where pure intellectual innovation will be rewarded without the need to commercialize it somehow...I wonder about the Star Trek idea of a new culture where money is not the driving force...I live that future already... Bio: Sari is an optimist by nature, someone who always sees the sunny side of things, even if there is no sunny side really...She grew up with two wonderful parents & a great brother...Later she married the very best guy in the world, another artist named Joseph Grove...She likes art because it is for her a happy place to be...A place where joy can reside...So she decided to make art herself because that was the nicest thing she thought she could do for people’s lives...I’d tell you more about angst or strife or misery or struggling, but really, that was not the case...But perhaps, because I am Sari ; I am writing this, my perception is warped by my extreme positivity...But, to tell you the truth, life has been good... p.s.You can read more about my credentials on my main website at http://www.grovecanada.ca ...But I have left a few things out, credential-wise... My feeling is:"By their fruits, ye shall know them" which is from the New Testament, Book of Mathew(7, 16-20)... So read my books ; see if the fruit tastes good to you...I feel those are better credentials than telling you something on a resume... p.p.s. I am a Christian...Whatever that word means to you...
