Paint Me A Garden

Murals (middle, and bottom picture, on the right) have graced our habitats for a long time.
The oldest known one, is believed to be located in Chauvet Cave, France. It is estimated to be approximately 32000 years, old.
Wall paintings diversified greatly with the arrival of Frescoes (top, right picture).
Using watercolors, and fresh wet, semi-dry, or dry plaster as its medium, they produce elaborate, and stunning, results.
Today, both, Murals, and Frescoes are still highly in demand; not by privileged few, but by all of us.
Wall paintings are beautiful, and highly practical.
They make great interior accents. Some of the paintings create illusion of space, - highly desirable in small rooms with few interest points.
Wall paintings are great outdoors, too. They break monotony of city buildings, and other, walled structures.
The best thing about these paintings is that anyone can do them; be they highly skilled artists, or art novices.
So, why not get inspired by your own garden, and bring little cheer to your bedroom, shed, or fence?
