More Murals

We finished the mural at the group home yesterday. I’m told ladies were happy and excited to see it when they got home from work. That makes me happy. Carole and I had fun doing it. It really warmed up the entry of their house. It felt like old times. As we were setting up I felt a little rusty, search but it didn’t take long to get back into the groove again. Those years were just so fun for us. I don’t really know how many murals we painted, pills but I can say there were a lot! Many of them were done in historical houses. Now I wish I had taken a picture of the houses tool We met some of the nicest people. Many of them had coffee ready for us when we got there, and and some made us lunch. They really made us feel right at home, and we became attached to their families. I didn’t have a digital camera back then, so my photos aren’t the best, but I’m glad I have them. I enjoy looking at them and I hope you do too. The next two photos show a couple of our commissioned pieces.

This blanket chest was supposed to sell in the showroom, but the owners of the business liked it so much they decided to keep it for their home.

This is the back of the chest.

This fireboard was inspired by a 19th century folk art painting entitled “Lady Liberty”.

Here’s a before and after shot. Look at how the mural warmed up the room. We also antiqued the rest of the room. That made a big difference too, it pulled the whole room together. This little boy was as excited as his mother when the mural was finished. Can’t you tell by his expression?

Hope you enjoy the pictures. I have more in couple of days.
HAPPY DAY

    Carole, WOW, they are great. I love each one! I would love to do my dining room with stencils, the entire room, but lack of energy and time will not let me do it! I enjoy visiting your blog very much!

    Thank you Martha. I have to admit, these are not my favorite murals, I’m saving the best for last. Now go stencil that dining room! It is going to be a lot of work, so maybe you could put up a chair rail or stencil one, and do just the top. You’ll love it.
