Painting a Mural for a Dr Seuss Musical

My lovely niece Mary Rose was in a Seussical Musical, and played Gertrude McFuzz a lovely bird with a very small inadequate tail.  She sang beautifully, gesticulated, and was a great little actress.  She shone like a star, and everyone had a wonderful time.  I was asked to design and paint the 16 foot by 16 foot mural, and my sister-in-law helped by getting paint, picking me up, buying lunch, and was terrific at following instructions and painted like a pro.  She brought in a lovely agile young woman, to help paint and we all had a great deal of fun. The following pictures are of Mary Rose, the mural and a cast of characters.  Enjoy!! 
Obviously this was a fun project, and after we painted the mural in two days I went on to visit JellyBeanStock North (I'm the southern division just North of the border), and we visited two needle point shops Aristeia, and Queen Anne's Needle Point shop, and on to Fleur de Paris for more Canvas (hello and thankyou to Maria), and also the Disneyland of Floss and thread manufacturing Rainbow Gallery (Wonderful visit with John and Sally, thank you for all the advice and info).  I will blog about each place seperately, and tell you about all the wonderful adventures we at JellyBeanStock have been having.  Say YES to life, explore the world, and enjoy each minute.  We laughed so much on our trek to all these stores.  Life is write when I get more work, and be sure to enjoy your day!!!
