In previous posts I've mentioned the ambitious mural undertaking in the front entryway of our home. I've been working on this painting for about 5 months or so, though not continuously by any means. I do a little bit at a time when I get a free second. I have to admit- I kind of enjoy the long process- it makes me sad to think about completion (although that's a long way away). This is the last mural I have planned for my own home- but maybe by the time it's finally done I'll have some commissioned murals to move onto;)
Here is a little peak at the part that I am working on right now. I am painting a bunch of Allium-inspired flowers in the foreground of the picture. Below I document the process I go through to complete each element of the mural- here's a quick glimpse as to why it takes so much time to complete it!
Below are a couple reference/inspiration shots from my friendly neighbor Kara's beautiful gardens. (check out her fabulous Etsy shop- she's got a lot of great stuff on it!)
