Magic Spring Mural

This is a commissioned mural in a new home in Skokie, IL. It descends a staircase and is on the ceiling. The inspiration for the mural came from a collection of ideas and images special to the home owners.

As I painted, a story emerged. It is the story of a lonely unicorn who comes across a magical spring. When he leans down to drink, he finds that there is a whole other world on the other side of the water. A world filled with beings just as magical as he.

I am going to title it “Magic Spring”.  It make me think of the “Through the Looking Glass” concept.

I am available for commissioned murals in your home as well. Prices start from $600.

There is no talking in it, but I’m pretty proud of my new little creation.  If you love what I do, please feel free to share.  I am a one girl production and can use all of the help I can get.   Thank you and I hope you enjoy these images.

The Little Book of Laughing

by Ms Anna

If you start laughing, I’ll start laughing too,

And I’ll bet…

The little CAT will start laughing too,

“Mew Mew, Mew Mew”

If I start laughing, the little cat laughs too,

And I’ll bet…

The GOLDFISH will start laughing too,

“Gloob Gloob, Gloob Gloob.”

If the little cat starts laughing, the goldfish laughs too,

And I’ll bet…

The HUMMINGBIRD will start laughing too,

“Zoom Zoom, Zoom Zoom.”

If the goldfish starts laughing, the hummingbird laughs too,

And I’ll bet…

The BIG TREE will start laughing too,

“Swoosh Swoosh, Swoosh Swoosh.”

If the hummingbird starts laughing, the big tree laughs too,

And I’ll bet…

The LITTLE BOYS will start laughing too,

“Hoot Hoot, Hoot Hoot.”

If the big tree starts laughing, the little boys laugh too,

And I’ll bet…

The FLOWERS will start laughing too,

“Bloom Bloom, Bloom Bloom.”

If the little boys start laughing, the flowers laugh too,

And I’ll bet…

The LITTLE GIRLS will start laughing too,

“Coo Coo, Coo Coo.”

Now we ALL are laughing and the moon is laughing too,

And when we think of who to thank, we all will turn to YOU,

“Thank You, Thank You.”

(This poem is dedicated to Jimella Lucas Todaro.)

Inside of Jimella's magical and warm home there were many tributes to nature, Herons, and other wildlife from the Bay.

Rolling For James

My art board made especially for James for his fundraiser to raise money for his family to buy him a roll in van and shower.   We had a great time, I probably painted 50 or 60 full faces.   Lots of Monkeys and Kitties and odd Mustaches.   Please check out more about James and, if you can, help support him and his family http://www.rollingforjames.com

Doe Painting

Mixed Media on Smooth Bristol.   12" X 9"   The flower colored sparkled incense is like Qi or Prana.  One of my favorite things about studying chinese medicine, is how seriously the chinese take Qi.   Here, all these years in the west, people just look at me like I'm crazy if I mention Qi, but, in China, not only do they utilize Qi in every day, they have five millenia of texts and research on it.
