Hi Everyone, Happy December!
My latest mural was quite the problem to solve, visually. I was asked to represent all the disney princess in one mural without actually painting any of the princesses, within a faux balcony landscape. I was working in the home of a family of MAJOR Disney fans, so they were able to correct me in my lack of precise Disney knowledge.
One wall is a "balcony" looking out onto a kingdom (featuring Rapunzel's tower, Mickey in the clouds (see it?), and a big ol castle. "Hanging" on the "inside" on the wall, are Mulan's sword and Merida's bow.
On the small wall perpendicular to the main one, I painted some faux shelving and a table with more objects to represent the princesses: a clock striking midnight and a glass slipper for Cinderella, Belle's rose, a genie lamp for Jasmine, and Aurora's crown. On the table, a note from one frozen sister (Elsa and...?), and on the ground, Snow White's poison apple (sadly....already bitten into). One the ledge of the main wall, two little frogs for princess Tiana. WHEW so much detail. So much Disney! I'm always so so happy to work in children's rooms though, and this one was no exception. The squeals and smiles from the two girls who live in this bedroom was almost payment enough. Almost. ;)
And a selfie in the clothes that make me the happiest to wear out of any in my closet because of what I do when I wear them. Even though they look disgusting. And new headphones too!
Happy weekend you guys!
