Healing mural painted for a family in Killeen, Texas, in January of 2006. It is 11 feet wide and 8 feet high, and it was painted with semi-gloss, interior, acrylic house paint. The family said that their son loved to go to Sea World when he was younger, and also enjoyed the boats and jet skis at the local lake, so I incorporated all of those elements into the mural. He now spends 99% of his time in his room, in bed, so I gave him his own private ocean.
