New Bathroom Mural in Progress

Filed under: Commissions,Floral/Botanical — by Karen LeGault @ 02:40

Its March 15, 2010.  I am creating my first BLOG! This morning I found myself in a bathroom between two rooms full of Birds. Cockatiels, parrots, parakeets, budgees, a canary and some I don’t know how to recognize yet. Reflective of their various owners, I am listening to an amazing array of clicks, clacks, whistles, copies of answering machines, recorded messages, sirens, car alarms, excerpts from symphonies… The people who own the house babysit birds. (and dogs, cats and rabbits) I am just getting started on a mural for this bathroom. It doesn’t look like much yet, just getting started  blocking stuff in. The wall tile is a gray green, accented with plum neutrals and tints, the floor an earthy selection of dark greens, grays, gray lavenders. This picture is taken on March 16 around 6pm.

The image is just taking shape. There are a lot of decisions to make. The inspiration for the mural is Strawberry Creek in the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden. The shape the image and composition will take is entirely invented though, to fit the horizontal shape of the space above where a beautiful slipper bathtub will rest.



  1. Karen, this blog start is hysterically funny. Is the room a dedicated birdbath?

    • Hey Bob,

      It would appear that way from what I wrote… It will actually be a pretty cool bathroom for humans! It just so happens that the two rooms on either side of it are full of pet birds!
      Thanks for checking it out,
