Turned out not so bad. My SO calls it digging in.

That looks great! I would love to have something like that in my house when I'm old enough to have my own house lol.

Very cool! I greatly admire anyone who can paint/draw. I can screw up a stick figure.

I have the lambda symbol from Half Life 2 painted in my garage.

Yours is much more professional-looking. Mine is yellow spray paint, graffiti-style. Like this, but without the "2":

Very, very cool! That looks like fun, too, although I can't paint worth beans.

I do have to ask: Please, please what kind of tree is that? I'm a tree freak. I wonder if it would grow here? Gorgeous!

How beautiful and bold! Sadly, I only have a portable garage and its hard to paint on neoprene!

Thanks everyone. It was sort of a memorial day/birthday thing. Had a good time doing it too. Wish I had more walls that needed a mural like that.


You have great legs.

Thank you, they were on sale so I picked 'em up.

That is a California Pepper tree. Not sure where it can grow, but it's sort of a weepy tree. Flowers and gets little pink berries, and never loses it's leaves totally (read it's messy all year).

I was thinking the same thing. They look even better than the mural, which is outstanding and beautiful to behold. :)

that turned out great-I bet people driving by think you have a real large flag hanging on your garage wall.

In person the mural is way better. :P

People keep driving by and slowing way down. It looks pretty cool from the street. I spent the morning touching up all the stars and making sure the red was solid. My SO is so stoked about it, he's planning a POW emblem on the back wall. It's going to look like the VFW in there. :D

That looks awesome! Your first is always the best. I remember my first mural too. (-;

PS...it would have been slightly nicer had it been a MAPLE LEAF. (-;

Love it! My boys had matching T-shirts when they were little with very similar flags on them. Neato. You did a great job!
