paint over it, if you get up close enough, it just looks like a bunch of different colored dots.

I think that may, indeed, be the one. If I ever get to see my family again, I'll let you guys know. That's impressive, though, paintball head.

Your post reminded me of a mural in a house I worked in.
It was cute, they didn't want me to take a picture of it head on.
Wish I knew the history of the artist.

Were they concerned about flash exposure like the Mona Lisa at the Louvre?

Actually it was that they didn't want it reproduced without their knowledge or permission.

It is a really nice looking mural. The more I'm seeing of these, the more I think I actually like the idea of them in some houses.

The more I look at that mural, the more I like the wood in which it is encapsulated.

We have some nice historic neighborhoods in San Antonio. They fit.

It's funny, when you talk about a subject, all of a sudden you see it everywhere.
Like calling out the color blue, then look around the room and you see all the blue where you didn't before.

Turns out, another job this week with these old timey murals, foil no less.
All the way around the room and no repeats...

The Sunday thread is alive. Yay!

Color me conservative, but I like murals papered to my walls or I like framed paintings on my walls.

When you do both, I mean how busy and chaotic do you want your ambiance to be everyday?

This family is very loyal to this area. They haven't lived there that long but I anticipate it will stay until after my retirement.

Good points. I guess when you make up your mind, your mind tends to be very forgiving.
Have you seen this thread?

That's awesome, I hope they never take it down. Though I agree- pictures don't work with it.
