Besides drawing pencil portraits, I occasionally paint with watercolor, oil or acrylics; on paper, canvas or walls.

Here is a recent mural I just finished for a lady who wanted grape vines and a scroll with a lovely saying about wine on her walls. Acrylic; about 10 hours.

LOL nah, I'm not crazy. The people who made up Spongebob Squarepants and his pet snail Gary are crazy. :crazy: I just like drawing those crazy characters... wait... I guess that does make me crazy, too :D

This is so wonderful! I am so slow in getting to see all of these works that came in while I was away for a month. I am so glad to have seen that you do murals too.

This is beautiful! I have a friend who has asked me about doing something similar to her walls but I think she wants something even more detailed than this and I just don't think I'm up to the task! I might decide to do it someday on my own wall, but I'm just too lazy to do it for someone else! ;) I really like the subtle 'texture' you put behind the areas you painted. It gives the wall and old 'worn' look that fits wonderfully with the theme. And the type looks great! Did you freehand that? I'm sure the lady is well pleased. You did a fantastic job with it! :clap:

Thanks so much for your comment; everything is indeed freehand. the "worn" look took 30 seconds; I simply mixed a goldish color, dipped a rag in it, and rubbed it on the wall, then took another rag and rubbed it off! it was that easy. You shoul do a mural; for someone of your talent, it would be no problem.

wow athe. that's really fantastic!
that's old school traditional artist!
painting decorative murals for commission.
can't imagine ANYone ever asking me to do that.
they'd probably be afraid that anything i put on their walls
would cause their house to become possessed or something!!
heh.
nicely done!
