M is for Monogram Mural Idea

As you can tell, I like love shapes and colors; what are the letters of the alphabet but additional shapes with which to play. Here I have collaged/painted my initial 'M.' I'd like to monogram your wall, your door, etc. with one or more letters in this fashion. Give me a 26-room boutique hotel and I'll do one wall in each room! (Assign them 'room letters,' instead of 'room numbers') 

Here is a good place to point out that unless you see a frame, my paintings are likely 'wrapped' canvas, like you see here.

Pie Plate Painting

Mixed media collage - 12"x12" - SOLD (not that I couldn't replicate something like this on a wall in your 'bakery') - (click on photo for enlarged view)

My Paintings Grace the Walls

Here are a few of my paintings (one large and two small) that I used in 'staging' this Bucktown, Chicago condo for sale. Pictures of the individual paintings to come.

Mural Mirror Border

The owner of the beautiful Pineapple Dance Studio in Forest Park, IL requested a lotus flower motif similar to one she had seen in a book, and below is the Moroccan style border that resulted. After I completed the painting of the border, using a mixture of deep blues, turquoise and gold metallic paints, she embellished it with acrylic jewels and belly dance hip scarf coins that dazzle in the light. (Click on photos for enlargement.)

The 'Before'

The 'After'

All Four Walls Muralized, Top to Bottom

In this room, all four walls have been muralized, from top to bottom. It is so fun and cheerful to be in this room, like being IN a painting.

Here, a variety of motifs were 'patched' together as sort of an 'abstract art mural sampler.' Consider using just the leaves or just the tree branch shapes. Use many colors - as in this room - or keep it to a more monochromatic look, or anything in between. This type of abstract art mural will bring to life spaces where you want more positive energy. Kitchens, restaurants, offices, waiting rooms, powder rooms, you name it. A mural like this makes a fun surprise if painted on the back of a powder room door. Just one wall behind a bed would make a stunning alternative to a headboard.
