beach house mural, living room and dining room

Someone else started this with a one-wall mural in the dining room. I continued it down the hall years ago when I first started doing murals. Now I get to bring it all the way around the living and dining room area.

This is the dining room, from the old original mural around to the back door. The picture with the flipflops is under the DR window, between window and floor. Does it fool you?

More to come....

Re: beach house mural, living room and dining room

Last ones. This is the wall where the TV entertainment center lives, so there's not much in the middle. Then the last wall, next to the back window. That's client's granddaughter and granddog.

Whew! I started this on April 20, took Sunday off, finished on April 28. About 5 hours per day.


Comments welcome!

Just LOVE it and I am sure they do too. How nice for them to be able to live in such a beautiful environment you created.

Looks like it would be a fun place to be Ruth. I, too, like the banana type leaves. The foot print helps sell the flops, nice touch.

So about 5 hrs. eh. That usually does it for me, too. By that time my back is aching which wreaks havoc on my thinking processes.

Re: beach house mural, living room and dining room

Ruth, these murals are fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing and for posting a link from PA....It's nice to see what you're doing when you're not over there. 'Love the beach with flip-flops, and the golf cart scene.....and the rest too.

Jamie
