These murals were both gifts-slash-commissions for my Nana. She and Pop-pop moved into Patriot's Colony, a retirement community, and faced the challenge of making the new house really feel like home. These murals have really helped them lay claim to the place.
BEFORE & AFTER
Sorry, no 'before' pictures for these.
NANA & POP-POP'S HOME
crisp, clean, inviting
My mom and I dynamic duo-d this one and painted the whole thing together (she let me say I was in charge :) Whenever we go to visit, we'll add a bird or two to the scene. Also: My mom paints twice as fast as I do, it's ridiculous.
(see if you can name all of the laws of physics we wantonly blasphemed against!)
Size: 12' long x 10' high
NANA: Emily, would you like to paint a mural in my bathroom?
ME: Sure, what were you thinking of?
NANA: Oh, maybe some flowers. Or fish!
Size: 10' x 6'
All the other little old ladies are very jealous.
