Tucked amounst large trees in Historic Fort Worth Texas was this quaint remodeled home. The Cranz family is nothing short of cool. They also had incredible taste in art and artists! They had some really unique art prints in their dining room, so I matched the blue that was on them for the sky. I only added grey and a little cream to the clouds to give it a cool crisp look. It came out great and it really added to their lovely home.
Nestled on a quaint street in the Valley of Los Angeles, this adorable home was nothing but perfect. I LOVE LA so much! I painted this room for the little Harvey brothers Noah and Ezra. The room had a classic eclectic style to it with hardwood floors, crisp white walls, and good furniture by AFK. So I chose a clean crisp soft blue for the blue on the ceiling, then added cream, gray, and white for the clouds. With an A frame ceiling, they had a lot of light coming into the room, so I chose a pretty nautical blue and used my go to white (polar bear) by Behr for the clouds. No better way to top off this ceiling then with Buzz and Woody themselves. So fun and adorable! They loved it and it really added a fun element to the room. One of my favorite rooms and the Harvey’s were incredible hosts!
This was a fun project! First off, the house itself was incredible. It was nestled off Benedict Canyon in Beverly Hills Ca, one of my favorite streets. They were still under some renovation with the house, but the kids room was ready for me. A little boy and girl shared this giant room, probably 15x17’ in size. The color pallette for the room were soft whites, pastels, hardwood floors…perfect. I chose a soft pretty blue for the washed sky, then added creams, gray, and white for the clouds. Of course, a signature item in many of my sky murals is the skywriting airplane. And the cutest “We love you” saying. Adding a heart shape gives it something specail also…at least I think so. I even added a dinosaur cloud, can you spot it? I don’t remember the blue color I picked off hand, and I always write in it my black book of murals, but it was spot on! I can tell you that my white that I always choose is called “Polar Bear” by Behr. It’s literally the BEST white out there and my GO TO for sky murals! Everytime I paint for a client, I walk away learning something. Whether it be something with the job itself, a moment shared between me and the client, or even something small like an object. With this trip I became more into making sure I gave myself more self care. I had just finished radiation (had cancer) and the client knew about it. She gave me incredible words that she follows everyday and gave me tips, even products she uses that I started using. I noticed also that even with her schedule, she took care of her first. Don’t get me wrong, I already knew this stuff, but it really stuck with this trip…literally. So for the past year and half, I’ve done just that. I come first everyday when it comes to self care, working out, yoga, etc. I have really been a good patient, according to my doctors orders of making excerise a top priority. So I encourage you all to do the same! Your mental health will thank you for it also!
