For the rest of the week, when not ever-so-slowly (but happily) building pages for the bookazine, I'll be finishing last week's Tuscany mural, in time for Thursday night's blog post. Check back Friday morning, if you're waiting to see how that comes out. Other murals can be seen on my website, theartofthehome.com.
