Pediatric Dental office murals

Hi y'all! I guess I've goofed off long enough, back to work. Here's this week's project. I started this at 9:30 AM Tues. and finished at 2:30 PM Wed. The decorator called me Speedy McGreedy. I just wanted to get down off that 10 -foot ladder!

This is in an exam room...

Left side


Middle..


Right side


In the big room on the ceiling...(4 photos cobbled together and photo-shopped) This is about 35 feet from end to end. Up and down ladder about 100 times.

I'm with Doc about that palm. Really great looking. Love all the beach scene and especially the sand castle and beachball.

Re: Pediatric Dental office murals

Thank you so much for all your comments! I keep finding bruises all over me, probably from horsing that ladder (named Godzilla) around! It's rewarding, though, when it's all over and I can say "I did that!"

Re: Pediatric Dental office murals

I find an unobtrusive spot near a corner to sign. I don't sign those like this ceiling one that has no good place for it.

Re: Pediatric Dental office murals

Very beautiful work, the beach scenes are probably relaxing to look at while waiting to have your teeth worked on. I love your sand and grasses, I would think a large area of sand like that would be a little hard to look just right, but this looks wonderful.... I'm taking it all in!
