Ever have a wall where you wish you could knock out and put a window in? That was the case in this dining room. It only had one window – a sliding glass door and I just couldn’t take the darkness anymore. Out comes my paintbrush.
I was very into Tuscan decor in this house, so a landscape with bottles of oil, tomatoes & garlic seemed in order.
I taught a class in faux red brick after this mural because it was so much fun and so dramatic.
In the other “window” I went fruity – lemons, grapes, pears.
(don’t mind the junk on the light – it was Christmas and I strung garland & pomegranates.)
So if you’re feeling boxed in – grab your paintbrush. Well, maybe hang some pictures of landscapes if you’re not feeling adventurous.
If you are feeling adventurous, and have no idea how to paint a landscape, I’d be happy to help. How? I’ll do step-by-step photos for you – maybe even a video, if I’m feeling adventurous! Let me know if you’re interested.
