I love my job

Other artists often do you get all your painting jobs?
The answer is..
I LOVE what I do.

This recent addition to a series of murals started many years ago,
actually BEFORE these boys were even born.
and luckily enough I was hired
to paint murals in their baby rooms.
Now that family has moved in to this new home
and their children have grown

I'm still lucky enough to be part of their family.
I've watched their children grow.
I've painted presents through the years for
sisters and moms.
I've painted murals in their parents and siblings homes as well.
I get to be part of their family, their lives, their loves.

Each mural tells a story.
My goal is to convey the emotion
the family wants to feel when they look at it.

Across the hall from where I painted
the "I love you to the moon and back",
is the boys
Under Sea Bathroom.
I wish my photography skills were better
because then you could see

that the whole wall is washed with blues
to create that under water feel.
You could see the jelly fish in the corner
that glow in the dark when the lights are out
and you could see the glitter on the bubbles
that catch the light as you walk in.
You could also see how this coral bed
leads to a ship wreck hidden behind the towels
to the right so they boys find a great surprise
each time they bathe.There are little surprises everywhere to
keep the boys imaginations going while...
they are going:)

Sometimes some scary surprises too!
Dunt-da, dunt-da...

The boys are their mother's
Son shine,
represented in each
of their rooms now.

I wish I could put up pictures of
the boys original rooms
but that was before digital cameras.
Yes....that long ago.Their down stairs bathroom
is kind of a
"Thinking Room",
with positive words
seemingly randomly
painted all around.

It's amazing how much a little paint
can change the world,
people's lives
I would LOVE to be part of your world.
Call me.
