In our old house, our girls' room was a tiny narrow room just big enough for the loft bunkbed they slept in. But to brighten up the room, my husband agreed to let them paint a mural on two of the walls. And the girls choose to do a mural of the fairy tale "Snow White and Rose Red." I painted the background for them: mountains, the woods, a castle, the cabin where the story begins. And the girls painted the figures of Snow White, Rose Red, the two princes, and last of all, the mother watering the rosebushes outside of the castle. I believe I painted the bear (one of the enchanted princes) which you can see here outside of the cabin.
Notice the fish jumping out of the pond. He's the other enchanted prince.
I have to say I was inordinately fond of how the castle turned out. Actually, the whole mural was quite successful: the people who bought out house liked it so much they kept it up. It's still there, last I heard.
Next post: "The Homes of Snow White and Rose Red." I'll explain what it's all about in the next post...
