Saturday was spent pushing paint around.
I thought of this while creating an Alice in Wonderland Mural for a good client of mine.
In essence, we painters are pushing paint around to create a picture of some sort.
I thought is was a funny way to look at it.
This is the 3rd mural for this client, her and hubby's third child.
I ADORE Alice in Wonderland, so this was really fun.
I also painted a Cinderella over 2 dogs in an old mural as well as clouds on the new nursery's ceiling.
In total, I was at the client's house for 12.5 hours Saturday, 11 of them painting....LONG DAY.
But I wasn't really tired, I was in the Zone yesterday.
I somehow, forgot to take pics of the clouds I airbrushed onto the ceiling...oops.
Very pretty colors.
Not sure if you can see it, but I start by sketching the entire mural on in chalk.
The White Rabbit.
One of the Queen of Hearts Guards.
Can't you just hear the Cheshire Cat taunting the white rabbit?
Cheshire cat makes me laugh!
Kuddos to Dad who suggested the lettering for the signs...cute idea!
Loving The White Rabbit!
I am such a crackhead, I know every song and line in this movie (4 kids and lots of Disney movies)
So as I am painting, I am singing in my head and reciting lines from the cartoon.
Notice the cake...big brother and sister got a "hand" in the mural as well!
Lastly, I painted over the dogs from a previous mural.
These were the family dogs, not to scale, they were about 160 lbs each...ENORMOUS.
One had passed away and the 2nd dog attacked and nearly killed the daughter at 18months old.
Her scars are visible, but not as bad as I had thought they would be.
As Mom told me the story I wanted to cry for her. I can't imagine the terror of your child's face being in the mouth of a 160 lb dog.
I was happy to paint Cinderella instead.
Aren't these the CUTEST kids EVER?
I painted all three of this Family's Kids rooms.
Of all of the murals over the years that I have done, nothing is more gratifying to me
that to paint a child's room, see the light in their eyes and the magic as the painting comes to life.
There is nothing in the world like the spirit and the soul of a child.
It was a long but very gratifying day indeed.
