Well, we had a request from a client for a hand-painted Serenity Prayer Mural for her husband on the bedroom wall for Christmas. What an exciting project! This well-known, beautiful saying apparently has very special meaning to him, and they recite it together EVERY night! Wow! We can all learn from that! After deciding where to paint it, we decided on brown to match the bedroom. It took us 10 hours but we completed it, and it came out fabulous! Her husband was instructed to stay out of the bedroom, however their German Shepherd kept pushing the door open out of curiosity, and we had to go and shut the door constantly, it was so funny! We had a great time painting and listened to Christmas music. After we completed the mural and cleaned up, the client brought her husband in with his eyes closed. When he opened his eyes in front of the mural, his mouth just dropped and he was so excited! Then he played with the dimmer switch for the two spotlights as you can see in the photos below. I hope we get alot more projects like this one, especially seeing their faces light up! The feeling is indescribable!
