My Bathroom

Yes - I can paint, but not like some of my friends or like some of the artists you find on the net. I have a coupld of friends who can paint original works of art that are amazing! Me - I need a picture - not imagination. The biggest painting I've done is our bathroom wall which is 8.5 ft x 10 ft. This is what it looks like:




I've redone the mountain 3 times then gave up and finished the rest. It will just have to do. It was a 3 year project, 'cause I got tired of it or frustrated quite often.

Behind/beside the toilet I painted a tree:



The tree didn't take me that long to do and I did it while we were renovating the bathroom, so the toilet was out. Couldn't imagine trying to paint around that.
So for now I think I will stick to painting smaller items, something that doesn't take quite as long to do.
This is my first attempt at painting on canvas. Not sure yet if I will sell it our not. It's a Pricilla Hauser design. Love daisies!!



Please come back tomorrow for my "Fantastic Finds" post. Have a little of everything, and some really amazing shops.

  4. WOW, great murals! It's funny that you kept reworking the mountain because that is why I've never painted a mural in my house, I don't think I'd ever be happy with it and I wouldn't be able to leave it alone. You did a fantastic job!

  5. Beautiful work. I love to see a bathroom hand-painted. I used to visit a craft shop that had painted a white picket fence all the way around the bathroom with flowers growing, birdhouses, etc. I would go to the bathroom just to admire the painting.

  7. I love the tree! I'm working on a sketch for doing a seascape on the inside of the bathroom door now. We took down wallpaper and painted in there in the Fall and I've been putting the door project off since then. Once I get my sketch worked out, I don't think it should take me long. (let's hope not as I'll need to take the door off to paint it!)

  8. I just love your murals! I would never attempt such a big job, but then again, I'm not a painter. Your canvas is sweet. Hope you'll be inspired to paint more!
