For those of you just tuning in, I have two sisters who are professional artists. The one who does theater scenery and tromp l’oeil lives here in town, and when I moved into my new house some years back, she decided to paint my closets for me. With scenes from children’s books/movies. I’ve already posted pictures of what she did in the front hall closet; this is what’s in the upstairs hall: Peter Pan.
This closet is really hard to photograph so that you can see that it’s a closet and still see the picture – it’s in the upstairs hall across from the stairs, so I can’t back up enough. So all of these are kind of close-up details. Anyway, in this picture, you can just see a bit of the shelf and the clothes-rod in the upper right corner. This is the back wall that you’d see when you open the door, with the Lost Boy’s tree (their underground hideout is further down) and the pirate ship.
And this is what’s on the bottom right, positioned so he’s looking hungrily up at the pirate ship. He’s the only actual figure in this one. There’s also the mermaid’s lagoon, up above him:
And last but not least, there’s Skull Mountain, painted on the inside wall just above the shelf, where you can only see it when you walk into the closet and look back out the door:
You can see a bit of my upstairs hall and the hall window over on the left.
This is why I have hardly any actual storage space left in my house.
