Back in early 2000, when I was expecting my first and only child, Dale, I was so glad to finally paint a nursery for my home!
When I was little, I loved the Beatrix Potter books. I loved the idea of all the little animal families in their homes, with tiny chairs and clothes. The idea of a tiny door in a tree for a mouse family, made me so happy!
Here are some photos of Dale's first mural, his nursery:
When I moved from my first home I had to paint over the mural in order to sell the house. It wasn't easy, but that's how it goes. Here is the next mural I painted for Dale in our new home, when he was two:
This was back when I was not careful to take good photos of my work. The little blonde dude is my son.
Later I changed this mural a bit--Dale wanted an octopus. So this was a couple years later:
Now he is twelve, and I haven't updated his room for quite a while. he really likes to play Minecraft, and likes the Deadmau5 music. Electronica I think, anyway the imagery is really cool.
Again I paint over a mural that I had spent a lot of time on. Oh well...
Here's what I've got so far for his room: First painted 3 of the walls red and one wall gray.
Here is the finished Minecraft creeper:
And here is what I've got so far for the "Deadmau5". The eyes have glow in the dark paint.
I still don't know what I'll do for the other two walls. As for the Mau5: still needs the logo and the Xs on the eyes.
