Caille's Ship Mural

 Caille's Mural
Two years ago I drove to Seattle and stayed with my son and his wife and my grandson Caille's home. They had a painter prime and paint the wall of his bedroom in preparation for a pirate ship mural. We went to the library and checked out several books on ships and pirates and planets.
Then I made some sketches and got a few supplies at Michael's Crafts. Caille and I spent a couple of days sketching the design out and he helped with his own drawings behind the door.

Then using a mostly monochromatic color scheme we painted the details and then embellished the sky and edges with a sparkly dimensional paint. It turned out very cool.


  1. When people see this they are completely blown away every time.

  2. Me too! I had so much fun with Caille while we worked on it. I miss him every day.
