Grisaille Tulips

Inspired by Graham Rust and his book The Painted House. It is a book on Murals and Trompe L'Oeill Decor. He now has The Painted House Revisited and I am very excited to read and see what new projects he has accomplished.

The Painted House is one of my all time favorite books. I spent quite a few years painting murals for my clients and painting tromp l'oiell scenes. Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy Holidays
