mountain house murals

I'm back from Maggie Valley, NC. I painted murals in a new house that's being built on top of a mountain.

The ground floor of the house is partly under ground, and this part has no windows or doors directly to the outside. So, I created some....

Dining nook:


Kitchen:


Close-up:



Comments welcome!

Ruth, again you have created a wonderful environment. I'll bet
no one gets depressed around your murals. They are always so fresh and realistic. Well done!

Absolutely adorable

I admire your work! This reminds me of what the Fench call "trompe soleil" (?), meaning "to fool the eye".
Absolutely gorgeous.
Can you come stay at my house a while?

One Question

I would never have noticed this except for your close up. Is it my imagination, or is the angle of the tongue in the shadow, different than the angle of the tongue on the bear?
