What I have been up to the last couple of months....

Post by Deb on Tue Dec 20, 2011 9:36 am

I have been painting a mural for some very dear friends of mine. It is a replication of Crater Lake and the view of the island called Phantom Ship. It has taken two months to complete from start to finish. Keep in mind, most of the mural was painted using brushes one inch wide or less.



Here is me, kneeling in front of it, just so that you can see the size of the wall. I look terrible, so do not look too closely. It was late and I had just finished up painting.

Hi Ally, I used artist oils and my delicate brushes for the whole thing. It was quite the project!

Thanks for the nice comments everyone!

Mr. Ophy, you already ARE my very dear friend! And, yes, if you supply the transportation and lodging, my painting fingers will travel to walls far and wide. Wink

Thank you Bisky. I wanted to 'end' the mural on that side gracefully, rather than a cold hard line. That is what I came up with.

WOW! It's beautiful!!! And what a task!! nod
I know that it's a hard work because my sister also painted a wall from some friends and it took really many time.

Congrats!!

Hmmm, maybe when he/she comes back from vacation? Wouldn't it be incredible to fly helicopter all the way over there?!?
