Update Your Bedroom with a Mural

Are you looking for something a little bit different for your bedroom? How about a mural that goes with a new print you are having framed? That is exactly the task that John Lomas successfully executed recently. The picture was a rather eclectic one of a lady entitled ‘Mother Earth’. The owner wanted her new bedroom to have the same theme as the picture. From that description and a look at the picture, John Lomas began brainstorming with the owner. Together they decided on creating a Tree Mural to complement the picture. The following steps involved selecting the correct look for the tree. The owner found several trees she liked and John helped her narrow down the choices to 3 possible selections. From there, she selected this sketch for the tree.

John went to work using the sketch as a guide for the tree. He first made rough outlines of the shape on the wall with white chalk. Then, he painted the tree trunk with a paint brush. Looking at the leaves and remembering that the owner had said she wanted it to look like a butterfly had flown from the tree; he elected to get several stencils of butterflies, birds and bees to intersperse through the tree canopy. The complete mural is shown here along with the original sketch the owner had liked. She was very pleased with the end result!
