Mural II

Mural take two. Panel two!
Here is the drawing for panel number two:

I'm still shaking my head in wonder at the sunny beauty of this week. I went back to muraling on Monday after the Easter break and became so entangled projecting the writing onto the wall and trying to outwit the briars of the sun that I completely failed to notice I was getting sun burnt.

One pink neck and bib later the writing on the wall was finished.

Not before the ever-talented caretaker, Seana, made an amazing fort from a rolling whiteboard and sheet of plywood.


On Tuesday I drew each individual flower on the wall and gave them their first coat of paint.

This time I had the sun out-foxed. I kept watch of UV rays using the trusty wristwatch-index, a foolproof method for fools like me. Shimmy your watch down your wrist to compare milk-white skin to the hot glow of pink running down your arm. Apply more suntan lotion accordingly.

Today I painted the second coat of paint on the flowers. I also cleaned the sole of a frequent visitor whose small shoe had unfortunately stepped its way right onto the lid of a tin of paint.

Tomorrow I hope to finish this panel. I have to apply a second coat of paint to some areas and go around the black trim with black paint. I'll put up photos tomorrow...that is..if the weather doesn't break!

  1. Maeve! These are darling! I just realized that your style reminds me a little of Quentin Blakes! Has anyone told you that before? Hope your day is well! xo
