Family Mural





I love painting murals!
 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.



Thank you!
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!
