A fellow artist, Kristin Taylor, was asked to paint a mural in two classrooms at Shalom Christian Academy. Kristin is a skilled potter and does some glass work too. She says she isn't a painter but she is doing a pretty awesome job.
Kristin felt the job was too daunting to take on herself so she called to see if I would help her. My two oldest grandsons have been students at Shalom pre-school and pre-kindergarten. I wanted to give something back to Shalom.
Last week, July 24 and 25, we started the first kindergarten classroom, the theme was to be "my backyard". We worked two long days to accomplish these paintings but are very pleased with our end results. The Shalom administration is pretty happy with them too.
Here is the progression photos.
