I finished the horse-themed murals - finally! (with the teeny exceptions of the faux French memo board for displaying ribbons, the growth chart, additional greenery and the rope emblazoned table, which will be done today. whew.)
The Jack Russell Terrier is done......boy I hated painting his eyes. I wanted to glue some googley eyes on and walk away, it was so hard.
The distant pasture and horses help balance the jumping horse. Looking at the photo, I see where I need to go back and fix the furthest colt's feet. It looks like he's wearing high top tennis shoes. How did THAT happen??
The growth chart just needs some feet and inches marked on it and it's done. The pink flowers are really just blobs of red, pink and white paint, all smooshed together...but I love how they soften the "plank" of wood.
I'll skip photos of the memo board, since it needs quite a bit of work, and move on to the hen and chicks. I had used a simple line sketch for my pattern, which had no details on it at all. I was really kicking myself for not having better reference material on hand when I started painting the details. Chicken enthusiasts, forgive my hack job - I know it's all wrong.......but fortunately, no one really cares.
Thanks for journeying along with me through this mural process. It was painfully slow, but as of today....IT'S OVER!!!!
