In honor of Father's Day, I wanted to share one of my favorite before and after mural projects.

I hand painted an entire lower level and bar area for a family that wanted to hang out in a pirate ship. The floorboards were matched and painted into the murals to "trick the eye" into thinking the space was much larger. I completed the room just before Halloween so my client hosted a huge pirate themed Halloween party. Happy Father's Day to all!

@Paradise Landscaping, Thanks for the compliment. I wish I could bring all potential clients into some of the spaces that I have painted. Pictures never do the artwork justice.

That artwork is awesome. If ever how much it will cost to hire you guys to that to our walls as well?

@ Warren Mullins, Thank you! I thought you might get a kick out of knowing that I named my daughter Sedona. :)
Arizona is one of our favorite places.

@ msp1tzer, Thank you so much. While I was painting the scene with the table, my client's cat literally tried to walk into the mural. It didn't work out too well for her. I ended up painting the cat into the mural since she wanted to be in it so badly. :)

I dabble in painting so when my daughter wanted a mural in her long and narrow bathroom I went searching for ideas that she might like. It took me a few weeks but I'm proud of what I did. I really felt like an artist.
That was 4 years ago...this year I did another mural in my granddaughters bedroom. The princesses and castle are a Disney sticker kit. I did the rest.
