This project was a labor of love! It was so peaceful to paint again. It had been since 2005 that I had done anything this large-scale. I had a little helper along the way named Abby. She was so patient with me and my work. She helped me paint and prep the wall for the colors and then helped me sketch the design on the wall. Later on in the process she said, “mommy, can I paint the paw print?”. I, of course, obliged! Such a sweetheart.
