Tuscan Mural that I had painted on my kitchen wall. The kitchen is located in the middle of the house, and there are no windows except for one looking out in the living room. I painted the Tuscan mural in order to open up the kitchen and lighten it up a bit, and it has helped immensely!

The idea for the Tuscan Mural came to me from seeing vineyards in California. I looked at several pictures of rolling hills, vineyards, and came up with this landscape of vineyards with poppies in the foreground. California has a lot of poppies, and I really like their color, in addition, I think the poppies helped balance the overall design in the kitchen.

I had used a faux ragging technique on the kitchen walls surrounding the Tuscan Mural to give them that old Italian wall look. From there I had added the fine details using a small brush and then blotched these areas with the rag.
