Come and see....I finished it today!!!

Well, it's been 5 days of sketching,painting and executing this fairy mural... I could have spent another 4 days on details but the budget was what it was...and so I willed myself to put the paintbrush down and called it "finished".
Don't you just love finishing a project? It's so satisfying...
We counted the fairies...there are 18 of them, each one different from the other.
I love this one maybe the best, as well as the little guy sitting on the cherries reading a book.
This client was a dream...she took care of the girls all week, and was so easy...she adores the finished mural...yay...aren't I lucky!
Oh, I like these two too, sitting on the swing catching up on the days happenings.
Even fairies have to go to school!
Bunnies and cats...and sleeping fairies.
I really enjoyed painting these cherries...is this a sign I should maybe paint some still life's?
Oh and here's the little guy reading his book.
Maybe I'll get more commissions from this piece...I'm very pleased how it turned out.
Hope you sleep well Olivia in your new bedroom...sweet dreams.
Until tomorrow everyone...I am SO exhausted, even after drinking and XLarge Earl Grey from Tim Hortons!
