Michael's Mural for my Fireplace
Michael's Mural for my Fireplace
My friend Michael Willhoite (whose murals may be seen elsewhere in my photostream) painted this beautiful mural as a housewarming gift. I asked him to paint it as though it were a fireplace surrounded by decorative tiles. We chose the motifs based on things I inherited from my grandmother's house mostly, with some other meaningful family associations, and homoeroticism of course, thrown in. The detail work is amazing!

I finally got tired of using a cardboard box to block the fireplace (no, not while there was a fire in there). So I ordered a screen. I'm rather pleased with it. It has a few decorative glass panels and the rest is screen. And there's double doors in the middle, so you don't have to move the whole screen to tend the fire. Should be nice next winter (assuming I get the fireplace cleaned).
