Painting a door

My niece, Caitie, hostessed a girls' night out at her new-to-her home during hunting season, and allowed us to paint on the walls of one of the extra bedrooms. Rachel and I teamed up to make a door to another world. Here it is in progress:

The fairy who lives there, but apparently flits through the door into our world on occasion:

That's me (my good side) putting some foliage on the pine tree forest:

A close-up of the naked fairy (I think she's about 5" tall, sitting down):

And the finished painting. I think it could use some more detail in the green hills, but this is about 6 hours total work over two evenings.

LOL.... after I read your post, I was thinking, "Janet, this is so totally cool!". Had to laugh when I saw Gerry's comment there, verbatim. But you ARE so freakin' talented, woman!!! Maybe you should give us fairyland painting lessons! :-) Hugs, Cathy

Great job! And Ditto what everyone else has said. The doorway looks so real -- I can just see a little kid trying to walk through it.

I love the idea! And it does look as if you could walk right through it.
