I have to say that 2011 is ending on a high note. I've never been so busy in December, and though most all my blog posts were about Holiday decorating, entertaining, and gift making, I have been working on "regular" stuff, too. Back at the end of November, Audrey Peterson, the minister at Unity of the Valley Spiritual Center, where I attend services and take classes, called to ask if I might have time to help her with something. She wanted to make the hallway containing the doors to the four children's classrooms much more cheerful and inviting.
|Before: Why does this look like the clinic Christmas party? Maybe because this used to be a clinic, with lovely purplish gray wallpaper throughout. Several patterns, but all purplish gray, with "Bruised Plum" trim. Mmmm.|
|It's a long wall...|
|...a really long wall.|
|Okay, still not so good with the red and green christmas decor, but here's the background color. They asked for vibrant, and these are only the deep tones!|
|These mid-ground trees show the general style of the art. Keeping it simple is my biggest challenge!|
|These rocks are my favorite part of the mural, so far, though I've a long way to go.|
I am booking up for the late winter and early spring, so if you are thinking of having me add some light and color to your home, check out my website for a portfolio of possibilities, and the info on how to hire me. theartofthehome.com.
