This 16' wall just seemed like wasted space until this palm tree mural was painted. I stapled the monkeys to the wall for more atmosphere.

This plane is on a large wall above the stalls. I had no ladder that would fit or platform to stand on. I stood on the partitions. It was very difficult to free hand paint this large mural.

Annette Tatum designed this room for Marcia. Marcia and Tom were incredibly nice people and I have since painted other rooms in the house. I was in fact at the house painting the master bathroom the day the twins were actually born.

Tracy Hutson of Extreme Home Makeover designed this room. We had one long full day during a major sandstorm in Twenty-nine Palms.

Tracy designed this room for her good friend Cathy at the very top of Topanga Canyon. The walls were textured and the paint seeped really bad through the tape. I spent hours touching up both sides of each line around the room. I have since learned how to seal tape on a textured wall. The whales are wallpaper picked by Tracy.

I created a boy and a girl version of the same design. I used fabric from LIttle House boutique and glued it to the canvas then painted with acrylic paint.

This is a large replica of a watercolor painted by a student. It is 8 feet tall on a 16 foot tall wall. I used a projector on a ladder ant then traced the image exactly.

The designer created this graphic and having learned how to seal tape I had almost no touch up on this paint job. Such a relief.

Music nursery

Music was the theme of this room. Those are spray painted records like Bob Seger " Night Moves" on a painted checkerboard background.

Striped kids bath

This was painted over very new and damp wall plaster. Pulling off the tape was like performing surgery. So slow and deliberate or large sections off the paint would separate from plaster. Very stressful.

A robot themed room needs a robot toy chest. All the paint is metallic. It looked almost like car paint.
