This past weekend I had so much fun at my in-laws house, spending time with family AND getting to paint!! They had asked me a long time ago if I would paint a unique space in their house - a Harry Potter-esque closet they have under the stairs. They wanted it to be their grandkid's hangout space with a castle and animals painted all over the walls. I had sketched out the plan for the mural a few months back but last weekend was the first time I was able to start adding color. It was the best! Plus my cutie, Luna Bear, joined me. She likes watching Fixer Upper, so I had that on while I painted and it was basically a dream come true.
There is a Rapuzel style tower going in on the right, and there will be a moat - complete with a happy crocodile. I've drawn in a very cute bunny, an owl, a unicorn, a goat, and a horse so far and I'm open to more suggestions! What are your favorite animals? Everything is welcome in this fun space, so think back to when you were little - what would you have wanted in your hideout?
I'd have wanted my Luna Bear!
