Farther up the wall
The gorgeous Maggs plied me with cups of hot frothy coffee and played lots and lots of Harry Nilsson today as I got on with the mural. This one's almost finished, save for a bit of a touch-up here and there.
I also have to floralise (my own word) the remaining big white discs. I've been waiting for colour inspiration, and I'm thinking bright, bright orange or hot, hot pink. Then there are to be a few bugs and critters in the low grass and foliage for kids to find while they're waiting for their mums or for Maggie to cut their fringes.
I'm very relieved to report it's been a hit so far with Maggie's clients, especially one young woman, who thinks a mural like this may be perfect for her children's library ... and who has taken my card ... (much excitement at this prospect).
:: At home this weekend there'll be more knitting, and quite a bit of sewing, and generally doing nothing more strenuous than walking the dog. Bliss!

Your mural will be your own best advertising! I hope you get to do a library.

Oh yay, Les, I've been hanging out for an update and I'm thrilled. I LOVE the greenery (and the purplery and the brownery) and will love the pinkery or the orangerie! Now I've made myself laugh ...!

So cool, I love seeing it in close up and the big picture. Love that you'll get more commissions out of it too.
