Wall Mural

The mural is painted in Hillevi's (mother-in-law) hallway where they enter from the garage into their kitchen area. She had been begging me to do this very mural in their foyer waaaaaayyyyy up high on a big wall overlooking their stairs but i'm afraid of heights and said no. So last week she came in and told me she found a place for it and when could I do it.. ya'll know she's OCD and she meant, can you do it RIGHT NOW! I told her no again but that I would go ahead and get the supplies for when I do get the chance. Well since I'm off on Wednesdays, it seemed to be perfect! It took me about 3 1/2 hours to do the tree, leaves, bird and the words. Then last night, I went back and added the rest of the grass, a squirrel, the worm in the birds mouth and the detail to the leaves and it took another 2 1/2 hours. I must say, i'm very pleased with the outcome. And yes Hillevi absolutely loves it too! And i've already got two more murals that i'm planning on doing for some different people in the area!!
