OK here I go! I hired a web company to help me with promoting my website and they told me, “I must blog.” But I’m a painter not a writer!
So, please bear with me and read this blog. I promise to share lots of picture! And, if you like them, I’d love if you’d share with friends.
I often receive calls from clients looking to have a mural painted but they have little or no idea what they want. This is part of the process that I love, helping to create the mural that will be a reflection of them. In that, I mean it will be a mural that they will love looking at everyday because it is something they are passionate about.
As an example, a few years ago, a woman called and asked if I could paint a window in the very dark foyer of her center hall colonial. A great idea! But, what did she want to see when she look out this “window?” We started to brainstorm and the creativity flowed. Everyone got involved (except the cats).
The couple had just returned from a golf outing in Ireland. Being avid golfers and travelers, they combined their passions and had traveled many places.
The husband had just picked up the photos of their recent trip and they were very excited to share them. On seeing the photos I suggested that I could paint one of the scenes outside their foyer “window” that I was creating. But, they had golfed at 2 different courses, both of which they loved. I suggested maybe painting two walls and not just a window.
From there somehow, we all concluded that the entire foyer could be painted. They picked their favorite hole on 4 golf courses, the Mansion where they were married and a Irish-style sign post labeling the different scenes with the mileage from their home to each place. What better way to reminisce about a fabulous trip than to gaze upon the scene every day?
Great post. The mural is amazing and it looks like it really brightened up a dark space in their house. Nice work!
Thanks. It was a really fun project and really did brighten up their hallway!
