wp-1582889248233.jpgRemember back in December I worked with a group of young girls at E Wilson Morrison Elementary School called Club Hope. (Click here to see that.)  The group works on encouraging self-esteem and communication. We did a Team Building project, painting several canvases that were joined to make a mural.  We recently delivered the mural to hang at their school.  It looks great!!!   If you are interested in a Team Building event for your school, your business or even your family event, click here.

Mural for Baby Room

Mural for Odalys 3Saturday morning I spent a delightful time at a local home painting a mural in the new baby’s room.  The mom had found a design she wanted to done and she wanted it to be a family affair.

Mural for Odalys 1So when I got there I drew it on the wall and started it and everyone in the family painted.  That included mom and dad and baby’s older brother who is also one of my art students.  We even got the family dog into the act by letting her paint a paw print in the center of one of the flowers.  It turned out great and I think everyone enjoyed it.

If you have a fun painting project that you would like to do with the family but aren’t sure where to start just get in touch at kwalker@doubledogdesigns.com and let me help.

Finished Mural

Two weeks ago I posted about a mural that I was beginning to paint at Main Street Travel in Front Royal.  (See that here.)

Well now the mural is finished.  And here is the final look along with a recap of the project.

We decided to go with a brick window since the front window of her store is outlined in brick.  (See photo.)

The client is happy so that makes me happy!

Main St Travel 8 ChairsThe Main Street Travel mural got chairs yesterday.  Now that everything is laid in I can go back and start with some details.  Still several more hours to get done but it’s coming along.  Just hoping to get it all done before they put carpet on the floor so I don’t have to be “extra” careful.  🙂

I spent most of yesterday painting a mural at Main Street Travel.  (You can check out their Facebook page here.)

I enjoy mural painting.  It’s fun to see the client’s vision come to life.  And Ginny is a wonderful person for which to work.  She and I had fun deciding what and where to put it.  You can see from the photos my step by step work yesterday.

 

I got the background in:  sky, ocean and sand.  Today I hope to get the rest done:  palm trees and Adirondack chairs.

A few weeks ago Michele Sommers, Sommers End Originals, and I painted this mural at our the Julia Wagner Animal Shelter here in Warren County.  It turned out great and adds a lot of life to a dull wall there.

We invite other artists to come out and add other animals to the window.  Plus we will be painting a tree on the small wall leading to the cat area and will add cats to that mural.  If you would like to help just get in touch with us.

You can see more photos of the mural and Michele and I at work here.
