well known New York architectural firm - www.tktheaters.com .

      ---------------------Red Wine Sunset--------------------

The inspiration for this surrealistic contemporary design was initiated by red and yellow swirls of colors of the rug next to the stairs (above). Also, red drapery, the family heirloom green chair and dazzling ornament Elvis the Cow (below) played a big role in the creative process. The final touch was elaborate work on the border, of grape wines, leafs and rocks around the mural. It was hand molded with plaster. Gold paint and glaze helped to finish everything in the best traditional, yet unique way.

The owners of this spectacular house, George and Robin asked me to decorate a few wall niches. Above are images of a mural in their wine cellar/bar and movie theater area. Below you can see one more mural for the guest's bathroom and the textured faux finishes in the smaller alcoves around the house.

Robin and George came up with this lovely idea for the guest's powder room mural.
It is based on cherished memories after their vacation to Cinque Terre, Italy
