Here are the photos of the mural at the church upon completion. Once I was done with the painting, I sealed it with Minwax Sanding Sealer to help protect the paint.
Once the sealer is applied, it really brings the colors to life.
When I painted the mural that had to be removed, I had a good friend, Donna, help me as we had a serious deadline on that one. We decided to paint her husband’s old Ford 8N tractor next to a horse in a stall. When asked to redo it this time, I wondered if Donna would want to help me with the tractor again. On the first mural, we had painted it from the back as though it had just been pulled in. This time, I decided to reverse it, as her husband Greg went to heaven a couple of years ago. She jumped at the chance and we had a good time putting it back where it belongs.
At the end of the hallway I painted barn doors against the red outside boards of a barn.
I hope you have enjoyed the tour of the mural, it was fun to paint. I love to see the reactions and comments from the children, and everyone has their favorite character.
