A Mural Of Memories

I went to look at painting a small tree in the bathroom upstairs when I saw this bare wall. I asked Maryann what she was putting on the wall and she said,"got any ideas?"This is a mural I painted of three of the countries they go to a lot. The lady was born in Germany so It was the first.
This is Germany where they were from. It is a small town that has this lovely fountain in the town square. I did this night painting of the town .
This is painted from 4 photos she had of Holland. They brought me back my own red wooden shoes. Tootsie would have a ball with all the flowers. I had to have a windmill in the painting of Holland.
This is Switzerland. I painted this from some of her pictures they took while on vacation. Yodle-le-de-whoo.Can you feel the cold Alps?This large mural was done in the bonus room upstairs. These three countries are the favorite of all her travels.This is the tree I paointed in the gust bath up stairs. All togather I had 13 hours in it.

This is one of the things about your talent that amazes me the most - the amount of time it takes you to create something !!!!

Helen I loved doing this one. She had books of photos. She picked out some of the good ones to use. Kathy
