Victoria's Room


This is Victoria's room, and is one of the first murals that I painted. It was so much fun to do! Her parents allowed me Artistic freedom but with a particular theme in mind. The wall colors were already in place. The division of the green and blue made a perfect line for me to paint directly on to-creating a border.


I enjoyed painting each flower, ladybug and butterfly.






The dandelions that blew through the air made this room especially whimsical and the dance of color, shape and detail transformed the blue and green walls into something quite magical!
I just LOVE painting murals and bringing life to an otherwise plain wall!

What a beautiful room.
I had stars on my ceiling as a child and never forgot them.
My grandson had a friend of my daughter who painted his room with hot air balloons (a particular favorite of the family)
Something special for sure.

Victoria is very fortunate to be able to wake and return to this colorful embrace every day! and what fun for you to have such a rewarding process bloom (pun intended) into something you've discovered may just be a new calling! Mural on :)

Leslie,

Thank you for the very sweet comments! I Love Love LOve how this room turned out. Sooo pretty.

I did something like this for my Baby Boy. Well, by 6 he felt he had outgrown it. It will work out much longer for a girl. He picked a red white and blue theme for his new room and as we covered the grass and flowers and trees on his walls we were both teary eyed. It is a room we will never forget. :)
