This is what I was able to get of the mural i painted in Colorado for my aunt. It was extremely difficult to paint this cuz of the small space I had to work in. Their house was built on a hill, so one half of the house went into the side of the hill. Instead of having the 2 bedrooms on the submerged floors be dark without windows, the dug holes down into the hill to the base of the rooms and lined the walls with cement so that at least some sunlight could get in. The downside...now you have windows facing a cement wall 2.5 feet from the window. So they asked me to paint a mountain scene, and, with 2.5 feet of space, acrylics, some very large spunge brushes and a ladder, I was able to paint this 9ft x 8ft mural.

A Christmas present for a friend of mine who is a volunteer fireman. Also, my dad was a paid member of the Houston Fire Department in Texas for 20 years and was through most of my childhood. Fireman do much more than help little kitties, of course: they put their lives on the line ever day to help people and are completely legendary in that respect. Keep up the great work guys!
