This is a first for me, I've never had my work go viral before, it is just a tinsy winsy little bit exciting and great news for my business. Here's a snapshot of the finished mural done in a very sweet and lucky little two year old girl's bedroom. 




  



Hmm, think I'm going to turn it into wallpaper - today!

*Update - Done! this castle scene has been made into wallpaper, take a look here if you're curious: Twilight Castle Wallpaper

New mural added to website - Woodland fantasy scene in School Library

Hiya, I've been working hard this evening to get this mural I painted last year up on to the Sacredart Murals website. There's always so much to do, resizing and optimising images, adding all the wording and all the extra stuff that you need to do in order to be found on t'internet. So here it is, ready to pop into your field of view with just one click:

Pieced together this composite image to work from...

..with the job of painting this for real to come . Looking forward to it.
This image is a Photoshopped amalgamation of Disney and Disney style artwork I found on the internet, with some "landscaping" to alter the composition  and painting over the top to make it lighter and brighter than the original version. I'll be using it as a guide image when I paint this whole thing as a mural in a baby's nursery, in the new year. The individual components of this image we're obviously not therefore painted by me, I can't take credit for that, but the reworking is analogous to making a new song out of digital samples. It is just a guide, no more, so I hope no one is offended, particularly the original artists whose names and whereabouts I don't know!
