    This is for a local costume shop which also is a Christmas novelty shop.
    They needed a backdrop to display various Christmas trees so they called me.
    It took me 6 days of painting after work at me "real" job, about 14 hours total. It's 12 feet high at the tallest point and 20 feet long.
    All hand painted using latex house paint and some Ronan water-based metallics.
    I still have three smaller panels to do but this sure beats slicing lunchmeat.
    Love....jill

    Nice work. I like how you did the shadows of the buildings.

    Excellent Jill!
    Did you count the total number of snow flakes when you finished? I'm really curious what that number is :)

    No, I did not count. I found this realllly cool thing at Wallyworld, in fact it was a whole little kit of these round sponge daubers for stencilling. They made the snowflake part a breeze.
    I was gonna do each one with a brush, or even cut circles from sponge, then I saw these things. It was the easiest part of the whole mural.
    Thanks for the nice words.

    Niiiiiice!

    An assortment of sponges and various sponge materials is an asset.
