Last autumn, kinda out of the blue, I was approached to paint two murals in a local church’s nursery rooms. Each wall was approximately 7 feet by 8 feet.
Both rooms are for toddlers. One mural depicts children sitting under a tree and listening to Jesus read them a story. There are animals that listen in too; A cat, a mouse, a raccoon, a deer a horse more.
The other mural depicts Jesus with wild animals from all over the world; A lion, a zebra, a lama, a panda, a fox and more.
I used latex house paint mostly with small bottles of Apple Barrel acrylic for the fine details.
I was given two weeks to complete the project and I worked on it on my own. It was hard work! I put in lots of long hours, but I got it done and my customer was very happy! I'm really proud of the work I did!
When I do my next mural I will figure in money to hire help!
