Happy birthday to my beautiful Megan Greenleaf, who just turned 3!

This is my first mural, and it was SO HARD to do! With my pregnant belly, standing on a stool all day, annoying acrylic drying too fast, blood draining from my arms, it was a time of reflecting how much more I really enjoy painting with watercolors sitting down with a table in front of me.

Aside from the complaining, the “Sea Maiden” looks pretty good, I sketched it all myself. The tail reminds me of an Arum Lilly. It’s even better in person but I just couldn’t seem to get a clear enough photo.

The mural is up in Megan’s grandparent’s “baby room,” where a mural for each of their grand kids will be made.
