Finished Mural in Dentist’s Office

A bit back I posted on the progress of a mural I was painting in a Naperville dentists office between Christmas and New Year’s.  I’ve decided to post the finished piece in a video (I opened a Youtube account specifically for this purpose and here are my first fruits for your viewing delight.)  The mural was meant to open up the area and give a focal point to what was an otherwise bleak and oppressed space.  I think it turned out successful and the video gives a better sense of the mural’s depth.

Originally the Mural was meant to serve as a backdrop for some lettering that would advertise the dentist’s name and slogan.  The day before I was supposed to put in the lettering, the dentist’s wife came in and saw the mural and decided the lettering would ruin it.  She wanted to leave it as a fine art piece and told me she would talk to her husband.  He agreed and the lettering never went up –  I have to be honest here;  I was pretty sure this was going to happen before she ever came in and saw the mural.  It’s happened before with other clients,… and it’ll happen again.

    How long did it take you to complete this mural (which is beautiful! by the way). I am an author currently writing a story which features a trompe l’oeil artist and any insight you might wish to share with me – day in the life sort of thing – would be greatly appreciated.
