Paint a Mural

Painting is like breathing for my featured blogger Colleen. You’ll enjoy how she can bring a wall to life and tries to show us how to paint a mural!

Mural Maker and More

Ok, Colleen has been a loyal TCB reader and has become a online friend.  It’s funny how you feel like you REALLY know them after a couple of years, but you’ve never met IRL. (in real life)

Once again, I totally thought I had already featured her.  Colleen is a painter.  A self taught painter.  I’ve really enjoyed looking at her paintings, especially the pet portraits.  I think I’m going to twist her arm until she does one of my sweet Maybelline.
