Faux Friday- Paint Party Friday

A mural done in an entry way in a private home.
This is quite large ,but a nice way to greet visitors
A Bit of Tuscany with a patio leading to the countryside dotted with Villas.

The kitchen of the same home.
A faux finish on all the walls and some faux bricks here and there.

Close up of some of the faux bricks and walls.

Hope you enjoyed a little bit of Tuscany all the way from Eagle,Idaho. hahaha.

Entering this in week 4 of Paint Party Friday Where lots of Great Artists are

Oh, Lynn! This is fabulous! I wish you were nearby...our home is done in a similar style & color (we designed and built it ourselves)...lots of beautiful stonework in the kitchen--I would LOVE the cracked/aged look coming down from the stone like that!

And your mural---LOVE IT! We've wanted to do something like in our entry for so long, but I do not have your skills, my friend! Beautiful!

So glad you shared this--pure inspiration!

I so needed a mini trip to Tuscany right now....you are an amazing artist! I love the scene and all of the details, as well as the faux bricks (cool idea!). My Grandmother was a muralist and filled her house with different scenes and places...I'm sure the homeowners will be transported every time they walk by. Great job!

How lovely to walk into the entryway and see a Tuscany scene. Does your home sport faux scenes? You could have different countries in every room?
