This room is 1900 sq. ft, with 25 foot high ceilings, and many fine full-bodied mounts. All it needed was some pizazz on the walls to set off the display.

I use latex house paint in custom colors I designed, and every type of brush, as well as an airgun and compressor for certain effects.

Here I am working on some red river hogs...that's one of my advantages as a mural painter: I can add ANY animal to any scene depicted! Birds, reptiles, you name it. My client's trophy had been damaged, so I painted one for him instead!

Another unique application; in certain instances, I will paint the body of the animal behind the shoulder mount, to add interest and create a realistic impression.
