This is beautiful Des, I bet they loved it!

Thanks, Janet. It was well received, I'm told. I just had a helluva lot of fun painting it.. I love getting a space like tis to work in - plenty of room to move around, no ladders required much, and I can just freewheel and make it up as I go along.

You are an awesome artist and how kool you create as you go, total freedom! That's when the best pieces appear! How long did it take?

It's a few years since I did this, so it's kinda hard to remember. A job like this usually gets done in a few days - there's three walls to this courtyard, and the brief was to decorate with nursery rhymes and fairy tales. The full picture sees the three little pigs and the big bad wolf, three blind mice. little Red Riding Hood, the ugly duckling, the cat, the diddle, the dish and the spoon and the little dog laughing, Humpty Dumpty and the King's Horses, Thumbelina, Goldilocks and the Tree Bears, Jack and the Beanstalk (with giant falling from the gutter) the Pied Piper with rats, and sundry birds, flowers, and butterflies. Like I said, a few days coming and going.

Holy cow!!! I appreciate your prolific diversity, well done dear art! I use to do 8'x20 murals for Keebler Cookies and so understand the efforts and talent what you create! Cheers!
