more of Bahama girl murals

These are in the foyer of a model condo in Myrtle Beach. One on each side of foyer. There will be more, as the mural goes around corners and onto more walls. This is as far as I've gotten with it. Acrylic on painted wall, approx. 8' high and 12' wide. The white stuff is chair rail and wooden trim.





Comments welcome!
Ruth

Beautiful, again Ruth! Were you not allowed to paint the upper molding? That's the only thing that stops my eye. I love this stuff.

Ruth - I'm a visiting glassie too and I have to say your work is stunning! I live on Saint George Island and there is a problem wall that I always thought a mural could help. Having seen your work, if I ever get to that point, I would call you first! I checked out your site and really like your style. Beautiful!
