Butterflies & Fairies Mural

In 2003, my grandaughter was born. I decided that I was doing a room for her at my house.
I also decided I wanted to do a mural on one wall. I gathered ideas and put them all together into one big picture.
My theme for her wall was butterflies and fairies.
I also included animals that signified different members of our family.
I had never painted anything of this size before. I previously had only painted wood crafts.
I had the use of a Tracer which was an enormous help.
I took me about 6 weeks over the summer to paint this 14 x 8 foot wall.
