Random Acts of Kindness … Messages From the Mural

In this portion of the school mural, I painted this scene as a dedication to my son. He is practicing a random act of kindness. My son is a sweet soul, so it is fitting for him.

I like how the gold paint gives the wings a little bit of shimmer. I really prefer oil paint, but painting this mural helped me garner a better understanding and appreciation for acrylics. It was a lot of fun to mix and blend the colors.

Sears donated a pallet of random discontinued house paint. Lowe’s also provided a few gallons of paint. We greatly accepted donations from a local paint supply business as well. I really appreciated their support of the school. The hard part was to find colors that matched (or coordinated) with all the various scenes in the mural.

The paint itself varied in type. Some of the paint needed several coats, some did not. It was an interesting challenge for sure. “Patience is a virtue” should have been one of the quotes on the wall. But in the end it was really worth it.

I love practicing a random act of kindness. It is one way to spread love into the world.
