They are big, fun and though in some there must be accuracy, there is still room for creativity which is the big 'surprise' in the family presentation. On this project I was given many photos but they were quite old and out of focus.
Facts given: This was a very close family that loved the beach. The young lady wanted her blue bicycle from her childhood and her dog included in the painting. I found an old style bicycle on the internet. Her bike had a basket on the front that was used to transport the dog. It was suggested that I not include the basket because the dog had jumped out and was fatally struck by a car.
A light house was put in the background:
The bicycle was included in the foreground on a hill along with a 'No trespassing' sign surrounded by seagrass. Adirondack chairs were placed at the bottom of the hill where the three of them sat to watch the birds run along the seashore. A glimpse of the young ladies' name was scratched in the sand surrounded by paw prints from her dog.
This is the completed mural.
Here are a few older pieces!
This customer wanted a quiet water scene, so this was chosen for the main wall.
This was the corner scene.
In a teens room a quiet scene was requested.
The corner scene.
Another room showcased a vintage Superman fan....
.....who wanted a plane over his bed sans a headboard.
Thank you and stay tuned!
The next projects include a Spiderman with a chalkboard and a mural of the great Muhammad Ali!
