I couldn't work on Monday because on Sunday I was dizzy all day and was reluctant to work on ladders on Monday--probably an oncoming cold. Tuesday I worked until it was finished, around 3 p.m. I didn't bring my camera so will have to post the finished photos later on this week. Because painting the swinging gate that is attached to the wall wasn't going to work out well without a lot of surface preparation, I decided to work it into the design by painting a snow fence behind it which somehow helped the gate to blend into the painting better. Customer wanted Chicadees so I included a bird house and two Chicadees. The customer also likes red and pink flowers so I included these as well to tie in with her red chair in the adjoining room. The simpler tree design at the entry was done to blend the entry area with the stairway area mural.
The overall effect of the mural opens up the living area in a cheerful way and expands the feeling of space.
