When I launched my Nursery Mural Registry, I knew I wanted to go back on local TV to get the word out to local mommies. So I called the zany fools great guys at Good Day Sacramento. One of the reporters emailed me back the next day and wanted to set up a live shot.
I’ve painted some wonderful nurseries in the past few years, but hands down, my favorite, over-the-top mural is this one I painted 2-1/2 years ago. Since I painted it before the baby was born (he’s now 2) the furniture wasn’t installed – just his fantastic crib.
Above the crib are leaping dolphins and a plane zooming thru the sky, spelling out the baby’s name in the airstream.
You’d never think about gorillas in a nursery mural, but these were painted in muted tones and go quite nicely, I think.
Every group of animals were either families or Momma & Baby.
The dresser/changing table was an old piece of cabinetry the client’s had saved.
Even the louvered closet doors were incorporated into the mural. They were a bit of a pain, believe me. They had to be primed, basecoated, painted and sealed. But the effort was worth it.
I think it’d be awesome to let the local Mommies & Daddies know about the Mural Registry. However, I can also do murals on canvas and ship them to any place in the world!
Thank you in advance for your positive thoughts.
