Painting on Walls.

I have always enjoyed painting on walls. Most of my “work” has been with a roller, though I have done some edge cutting in my day. When I leased a space for Castro Valley Yoga. www.cvyoga.com I painted this on the wall.

It was fun!  But it was mostly so when students walked in they saw something more interesting than a big white wall.  Over the years I painted on all the walls. (You can see the other murals on the “murals” page.)

The hillside painting led to my painting on a climbing Bougainvillea on the wall of a yoga student. It was my first “hired” job, I actually passed on receiving a fee. (?! Well, what if she actually hated it.) 

One surprising aspect is while I was at her house painting we started a friendship.  It turn out we live parallel lives. We are the same age, height, weight (up and down) and have been with our men 20 year.  

Any way, she did not hate her painted wall.  *:)  And now a few years later she is the director of a senior living center in San Leandro CA. The wall across from the entry way has a 7.5 X 6 foot curved wall. There was a very dark picture hanging there which no one liked. And the logo for the center is a beautiful cherry tree .

I got to pant a version of the logo on that wall. And it look perfect on this odd cueved wall.
