More About the Murals

Many of our murals were painted in historical homes in the Chester County, cure Pennsylvania. Some areas are sometimes referred to as “horse country”, and many of our clients requested hunt scenes in their murals.

This house was a gorgeous old stone house that sat on top of a hill. The view was breathtaking, but it was the house that was the “wow”! We painted their dining room, a floor to ceiling mural. The woodwork and the built-ins in this house were so pretty, and all original to the house.

This is hunt scene painted in another Chester Country historical home. It was a small early stone house, and said to be the oldest house in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Painting on the walls going up steps are always a challenge!

With the two of us climbing up and down the stars, stepping over our paints, AND one another!, was a pain, but we loved our job!

The most challenging commission of all was the historic painting a mural of the Saint Andrews Golf Course located in St. Andrews, Scotland. Our client hired a team of about 25 professionals, from architects to artists, all for the purpose of transforming his huge basement, a little Scottish town.

Our job was to paint a mural on both sides of the staircase leading to the basement where the town was to be built.

He wanted the 18th hole painted on the wall that faces you as you went down the stairs to the “little town”. It was impossible for us to reach and we had no place to put our paints, so he had his carpenters build a scaffolding for us. This is what you saw as you walked up the stairs. Notice the door was also painted as part of the mural.

Going down the stairs, the 18th hole was on the overhang wall straight ahead. The owner wanted you to feel like you were walking to the 18th hole.

A lot of research, was involved in the preparation of this mural. Our client was very particular and wanted every detail just right, just as he did for the town he was recreating, that’s a story in itself! It was a little scary taking on this project, it was a big challenge for us, but we were confident we could do it. We were very happy with the way it turned out, and most importantly he was too. It’s a wonderful memory for me, and I hope you enjoyed hearing about it as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you today.

HAPPY DAY

    Beautiful work! Thanks for ‘preserving’ this art form and sharing all about murals! I don’t live in a historic house, but I would love a country scene (perhaps a farmhouse with sheep grazing) in my foyer/entry hall…if only! Jen

    What a nice comment about preserving this art form, thank you for that, Jenny.
    Try you hand at it, you will be surprised what you can do. It’s only paint, if you don’t like it, just paint over it, but I bet you will love it.
