My darling daughter Beth created this mural along an entire wall of her bedroom when she was a 16 year old art student. I don't know how I agreed to allow her use black paint in what was once a pink and white eyelet room, but agree I did and the results were a fantastic example of adolescent self-expression. It took her weeks and weeks of painting freehand, usually late into the night to finish her project. Now it will be destroyed, along with other fixed features, as our house will be demolished tomorrow for us to rebuild a new one. This is one of the memories I will cherish.
