Gather Around the Fire Ring Before TV, before newspapers, even before we moved into houses... the fire ring was the gathering place to tell stories
and share personal experiences.

Nature Themed Room
Photos and Painting by Greg Palmer

This nature themed room is for use as a nursery. The idea came from 2 things. 1) we didn't know what sex our baby was so we needed a neutral theme and 2) the room already had blue walls.

I started by painting the ceiling the same color as the walls. Next I painted the sun around the light on the ceiling using a stencil I created for the rays to make them all the same. Then I moved on to the clouds using a rag technique. Even the duck and bunny were done freehand with a rag. After that came the tree; the trunk and branches were done freehand but the leaves were created using a stamp. It would have been too time consuming to do them all by hand. Last came the grass and plants around the bottom of the wall, which were all done freehand with a small brush.
