I may have told you before, but my mother was an artist. She really enjoyed going to art shows, collecting art and creating her own beautiful paintings. Mother had lots of "artsy" friends too. One of them was Phil Capen.
Phil's watercolors have been shown in some of the most prestigious galleries, public places and in private collections. He used to teach watercolor classes too. Mother took several of his classes and I remember her talking about him with the highest admiration. If you visit his website you can see some of his work.
I happened to find some note cards that mother bought at one of Phil's shows. They are a bit faded and worn around the edges but still beautiful. This one will become the mural for my beach house living room!
Here is what the wall looked like when I bought the house. I removed the wallpaper and painted but it still looked like it needed something special.
Here is what it will look like with the mural in place. I scanned the card then re-sized it to fit the space. I think it's going to look amazing?!
Right now it is just printed on paper and propped up so I could see how it might look.
I'm thinking about reworking the stairs and making an angle at the bottom with a landing. There is still much to do! I may add something under the stairs too? Like a built-in closet or something?
Hope you like my mural and perhaps find a treasure that you can use in YOUR dollhouse!
