Children's Dept. Mural at the Hamilton Lane Library






I have spent the last two weeks up on scaffolding, about 15 to 20 ft in the air... PAINTING!

And here is what I was working on... I started in December of 2008 painting the leaves and vines in the Children's Department of the Hamilton Lane Library. I was not able to completely finish the project at that time, because we could not find the right size scaffolding to be donated for use.
Jo and her husband Lionel were able to acquire the scaffolding and even built it for us.. So I would like to send out a special Thank You to those two.

The theme was a very contemporary take on Jack and the Beanstalk.
And now the entire project is finished...

Enjoy!

This is fantastical! Amazing work and so child friendly.
You were brave to spend all that time up in the air, but the result is spectacular. I love the design elements and the colors. What a welcoming place for anyone coming into that space!
