Wall Mural: Joy of Creation

Have mercy! I’m not an artist (at least not with paint) but I had so much fun with this. It was a challenge to photograph because the hallway is so narrow, but here goes:

It’s fantastic to take time to be creative in areas that I’m not especially good at. There’s something freeing about that because nothing rides on it. There’s no payment to be had or missed, and no reviews except for mutual encouragement and the pleasure of progress, my own and others’. This was the best part of the holiday.

  1. I’m so impressed – fantastic!

    1. Thank you! We had such a great time.

  2. Beautiful!! Where is dad’s handiwork? 🙂

    1. 🙂 thanks! A was too busy to participate except to admire our handiwork.

  3. Beautiful! Glad for the joy and freedom you got to experience together.

    1. Thank you–it’s something that is more worth the time than many other things I give more time to.

  4. Fabulous – joyful indeed! I want to paint a mural – perhaps a project for after I leave the job 🙂

  5. I love it! What a wonderful thing to do. Now I want to try it… What kind of paint did you use?

    1. Thanks Helen! I highly recommend it! We used acrylic paint. It’s easy to wash off if you make a mistake when it’s wet, but is durable after. I like acrylic also because it can be a wash like watercolour or go on thick like oils.

  6. Wow, that is amazing! And it’s beautifully done – your Toronto skyline is excellent, as are the dragons and penguins!

    1. Thanks so much, Litlove! Every time I walk down that hallway I look and smile.

  7. I’m very impressed! I think the skyline especially looks terrific. And what fun to do something completely different, just be free and enjoy being creative. Great idea 🙂

    1. Thanks Becca! I need to make more time for that kind of thing. Although I have to say that I’m in a cleaning mood today. It must be procrastination!

  8. dragons!
