Greatness...you are sheer greatness!

Helena,
<br>
Looks great. I bet he was thrilled with the results. Too bad it is on a wall inside, fewer people can enjoy it that way.
<br>
hugs,
<br>

That is AWESOME--great job! It would be fun to sit in that room for a nice dinner.

I know that I echo others, but WOW! Beautiful!
<br>

I love the &quot;he let me&quot; part - hysterical. He should of paid you big time. That is gorgeous and you should be so proud. My husband and I have a management company in Tacoma (one in Gig Harbor too) and would be so proud to have one of those on one of the rental units. I volunteer for the next one!
<br>
It would be neat to have it somewhere where more people can see it. (Like in a coffee shop etc.)
<br>
So awe inspiring! I've seen a lot of murals around that people paid lots of money for and yours beats all of them.

Gorgeous! It reminds me of (and I mean this in the best, most reminiscent of wonderful times kind of way) something on the wall of a bistro in Europe. Maybe in an Italian family restaurant. Love it!!! <img border='0' src='/images/icons/grin.gif'>

Hi Mom! <img border='0' src='/images/icons/grin.gif'> When I was painting the bird Scott told me its name was Edwina, but I think it's a male, so it's probably Ed. Or maybe Edwin. I will have to ask him.

Hi Helena, Wow! Words just can't do it justice. So amazing. It truly looks as if the original wall just isn't there anymore, and someone painstakingly brought in each block and formed the new wall and arches so Scott could look out and see that lovely scene with all the &quot;happy little trees.&quot; And to think this all started with those countless pads of tracing paper you used when you were three years old! Love, Mom
<br>
p.s. Does the bird have a name? =)

What a beautiful artist you are , truly talented. I wish you could come and do my house, what a nice friend you are. You could sure make alot of money, maybe you already do. I want someone to paint in my house like that.

Helena, this is truly amazing. What talent you have!! Great job and I love every detail, especially the bird. That alone added so much dimension. Oh.. and the &quot;Happy trees&quot; made me giggle. Bob Ross would be proud!! <img border='0' src='/images/icons/smile.gif'>

Helena, you and your abundant talent never cease to amaze me. You are awesome!!

Absolutely incredible! Beautiful!

I agree with what everyone said...this is just so beautiful....I love murals...I painted one of Noah's ark on my grandson's bedroom wall, and I know how much work goes into them...they are labors of love....someday I am going to paint one in my new home...yours inspires me...

That truly is awe-inspiring. It really made you feel like you were looking out the window. I am sure that your friends loved it...I would!
<br>
Thanks for sharing!

Simply Stunning! It looks so real-- you did such a WONDERFUL job! Even posting these pictures, I have never seen layouts one after another like you did. It was nice to scroll through all of your work like that. Thanks for sharing with us!

Wow! It turned out so awesome Helena! You are amazing. <img border='0' src='/images/icons/laugh.gif'>

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!
<br>

<br>

WOW!! I would sell my left arm for that kind of talent! (I'd need the right one for painting <img border='0' src='/images/icons/tongue.gif'>) Do you have any more pictures of your work? I'd love to see more. Also, what's your training, or are you just one of those &quot;naturally&quot; talented artists?

This is fabulous! Beautiful! It's so real...you can almost feel the cold stone...expect the little bird to fly out the window to the trees below. Your friend is so lucky to have a Helene Jolie mural. It's hard to believe this only took 6 weeks.

OMG!
<br>
