Is it real or....a beautiful mural?



The mural in the sala fresca is complete, and we are so happy with it! It really brings such a nice feeling to the room, and we are not exaggerating when we say it has made the sala fresca our favorite room in the house!

The artists are very proud of the work, and this picture shows how happy they are. It was a very interesting experience to watch them work and has given me even more appreciation of the finished artwork.

I thought it would be a good time for something kind of funny... When we bought the house we loved that the interior courtyard had a Virgin of Guadalupe tile mural near the roof. It's pretty, right?



But something just didn't seem right. Take a look below and see if you think someone shouldn't have been just a little more careful with the tile orientation!

Nancy and Paul -- Congratulations on the room. The mural is superb. You inspire me every day. Now, I wish I had been more diligent in keeping up wit my spanish lessons. The praise for the art should be in the native tongue.

I am so jealous and awestruck. The mural is even more beautiful when one enlarges the picture. The detail and color is marvelous. Congratulations on finding such a wonderful team to do it for you.

Nancy said...

Thank you all. We are really thrilled with it....and now also know we can never sell our house here because how could we leave this behind?

Wow guys, that is amazing! I never imagined it would look so integral. It flows so naturally from your structure. I bet you spend most of your time there now (when its not freezing).

Wow! Great mural! I am impressed! And inspired, I want to do some muraling but everything that I have seen locally has been more naive.
My goodness, the middle tile is upside down. It sort of gives an Esher quality to the Virgin, doesn't it?
